"I was recently exchanging emails with today's guest. A bad he's premium membership and it turns out he has a love of sauk cling lock. Do he used to rice and he even spent time in south australia from the us. I while on assignment for white for national geographic now is picked up and i poked a few more questions by any told me on the nat geo and commercial travel photographer stock at home trying to decide how to make money with that getting on an airplane right now putting my towards commercial real estate architectural things but honestly don't know what's going to work out a cape listening to the podcast about facebook marketing for portraits etc thinking. Maybe that's the way to go. We exchange and other email to and i post a few questions and he said for more than twenty years. I was director of photography for national geographic. Travel up magazine. I had an editor who let me find the graph. A couple of stories a year usually adventure top stories and i was lucky enough to photograph stories to the magazine. Such as climbing mont blanc the matterhorn and skiing to the north pole now following that exchange. I invited him on for this recording. I'm talking about dan west to grin and i'm wrapped to having this now. Dan welcome andrew so good to talk to you. Do you still pinch yourself when you hear an intra liked about the things that you've done in the past. I do i do. It's it's kind of funny. It's a hard act. Live up to for many many years. I would tell my photographer friends who seemed to have up and down lives. You know the freelance yoyo. And i would joke to them. Well you know. I'm addicted to my paycheck. And i have the chance to send you guys out into the field my editor lets me go out every now and then you know. This is working pretty well. Well you know the media marketplace changes and so now here. I am not working on the staff at national geographic anymore doing some projects for them but just trying to figure out how to make this thing happen as a photographer. Yeah the tables have really turned. I think not only for youtha for all of us. Haven't i this year. Oh yeah yeah. I mean and it's a double whammy with a travel photographer because i don't even of course you can imagine after all those years. I have this huge rolodex of all these photo editors of magazines and things like this but nobody even pays money for magazines to take pictures anymore. It's like the rug was pulled out from under my profession. The one savior for me. The last few years has been you could either call it native advertising or content marketing or partnership projects. That's the kind of things like last year. I got to go to canada. Three times for national geographic. To do ten day long stories about places and so i did prince edward island nova scotia new brunswick last year and british columbia and those were my favorite Trips to take. Because i will talk to my producer at national geographic since i had a background in doing the photo editing. At national geographic. The photo editors really acted like a regular editor at most magazines. If we thought that a story was not sufficiently visual we would tell people. We didn't think we should do the story. And a lot of magazines. The phone will editors are just kind of in their corner in somebody throws them a manuscript is air pictures to go with this so when they tell me okay we wanna to do an online piece about adventures in new brunswick ten adventures in new brunswick will then i get to study new brunswick i pull out a map i get defined tended ventures. I contact all the people that i think might lead me to those adventures and then make pictures that i hope people find interesting and then when we get back in my case usually i sit down and they know that i've chosen the photo subjects with story line and so they don't even send a writer. They have a friend of mine. Who i get on the phone marielle. And is her name. And she sorta ghosts rights for me. And i just tell her what my experience was like and why i went to particular plex. And that's just that's what i love about. It all is to do the research into a place and then actually go take those pictures myself in sounds amazing and said the way you described this right now the role you had. Oh have you familiar with the movie. The secret life of walter. Mitty of course. Yes you the walter. Meeting is at your role in national geographic traveler. It was a little bit different because he was more had a role that we would call film review which were the people that actually got to look at the pictures. I didn't have a big role in putting the magazine together. So you know that was kind of funny. It was interesting that i love that movie. You know he got to go out into the field. And i've just i've seen that movie so many times i was watching it and my kids. My son is twenty two. My daughter's twenty five and they're really into music and david bowie died.

"Climbing a really began at university after faltering start. My academic performance had improved considerably a function studiousness rather than any real talent and I found myself with a scholarship to Cambridge University. Cambridge is in the funds famous being flat wet and Windy. There is nothing to climb will. Not quite nothing. These days I'm told Cambridge is demanding institution but back in the late seventies. It was almost impossible to fail. There was only one thing you could do that meant automatic expulsion and that was climbing on the college buildings. This of course made the idea irresistible. A lifetime. Friendship was created as I teamed up with fellow fresher. Bill Medlicott. Who had not in the undertaken in Taya weeks introductory climbing course in north Wales but was also the proud owner of a wrote We put up a bold. I sent the Southwest Ridge of Sidney Sussex Chapel. At least it was bold if you'd Betty climbs before I recall standing on the chapel roof bads abseiled down the ripe now dangling into the courtyard alive when a college porter strode by. I thought if he looks up that's it. We went to made even won. Miss he didn't of the antics followed a per se. East Rub found its way up to the college belltower and Park Bench on the gate of Kings. All this high-spirited fun came to a climax when a plan was hatched to put our sixteenth century college up the sale. We Julie gathered from around town all these state agents for sale signs. We could find these here enough. A known as the stolen property was suitably adapted during the night hung out on the college walls a harmless prank of course but not in the eyes of Police Constable Ron peers they feel bastion of law and order cornered very student members on a narrow. Staircase uncalled for backup. Bill was one of those Into the Black Maria and taken away to spend the night at Majesty's pleasure in one of the local cells. Fortunately he was able to secure a timely release in the morning on the entirely truthful. Grants that as a theology student. He was also Sacriston of the College Chapel. The same one we had previously climbed a native to prepare the holy communion. His prompt release was particularly welcome. Because that day he was receiving a visit from his parents his father being the then president of the Cantaloupe Society Happily. The president took these developments in his judicial streit. Meanwhile focus shifted to real rock an excursions to the peak district North Wales on the lakes as a kid to it spent most of his summers on bucket and spade holidays abroad. My eyes opened for the first time to the beauty of my own country. The climbing was self taught Vilnai guiding each other as we alternated places at the sharp end of the rope. It was a good test of nerve because while comes modern devices protect against the fall has been invented. We could only afford one prototype between us on main protection was still the legendary chalk or not the MOH say original very effective when suitable cracks in the rope available but no use a tool. When they weren't then life got serious. I took up a high pressure job. Unthought myself very important. I come to the USA for a couple of years to do an NBA and returned to an even higher pressure. Job persuaded the CY was now. Even more important Vilnai married different women not each other and children followed. We continue to climb but it was distinctly sporadic. We went exactly at the cutting edge or any other kind of edge indeed at the crack. Fella climates with sometimes gaze test dated gave us. They we were exhibits in acquaint Museum but we did keep going in one fashion or nothing in the summer of Nineteen ninety-two. My wife raise marine. I had just taken on a new. Hi I'm we're expecting a second child. I thought this would be an ideal moment my climbing trip to the Alps. Needless to say Rosemary was delighted. I took on a French guy. Bruno wretched with whom I previously skied. He was known among my friends is Mad Brunei but the HEIM CONSUMPTION. I rebranded him. Bruneta wary ray was not fooled nonetheless. Brenner and I headed In the Valais in a single week we climbed the breath on on the Kosta traverse the come and the Monterey and finished up with the matterhorn and the dumb this Pak-tai tinny was made possible by extraordinarily good weather. I came away thinking that this was climbing in the else was always like dark days since carrying from rain and wind in Chamonix have corrected all such delusions the following Spring Bruno. Introduce me to ski. Touring gentle introduction would not bring those big thing nor was acclimatization. He felt that a great way to have a go at ski touring would be to. Climb Mont Blanc on skis so having flown in from London the day before I joined him for the long gain up to the ground molay Huts from there. We send it at two. Am Following Day Turing Skis on our back to reach the highest summits of the Alps with the world's now beneath this. We step to gain into the skis of the first time I used them in downhill mode straight off the top. We descended the north face which sounds rather daring. But it's actually the Manson's gentlest side gentlemen. Not by the. I reached mid station if they outgrew Dimitri cable car. I was hyperventilating so badly that my fellow passengers clearly thought talks about to die and I wasn't sure they would mistaken. Within a few weeks Bruno was in hospital. Having fallen through a snow bridge into traverse he'd been an inspiring guide and had my tree sympathy. I did feel that was a message here. And with thoughts of my continued survival high in my mind. I reluctantly drew close to are climbing partnership with each ending. There is a new beginning. I was introduced by older wiser friend to a new guide. An Englishman few years younger than I was hit moved with his fiance to Shemi. Mock Seton had lived there ever since I'm with. Jane has brought up three daughters all extraordinarily good sketches his parental. Gt's inspired his other profession. That OF CHILDREN'S AUTHOR. He created mark the Mountain Guide. Mock was a young guy with considerable climbing ambition but that. I'm bishen included becoming an old guide. Mine Kenyon who had done much of his manton. Having in Scotland he bought that sense of caution that came from repeated exposure to the unpredictable conditions in the UK's frozen north. I sometimes known that he could interpret. Almost any weather. Forecast is bad. I degree of caution though seem to sensible counterbalanced my own tendency to go for it. Come what may ask. Anti climbing partnership was before something deep. Still a lifelong.

"I'm only part time and I don't give a fuck so you know but it means something in the world of labels and Shit in the academic realm so if your fulltime faculty they block off time for Shit like research and teaching to like that so technically you're not as profitable so they pay you less just seems ass backwards because anytime you think. Oh part-time fulltime you so shape part-time less money fulltime more money but it's just the opposite so it's just funny to me because like people care about that. Shit and you know. The university that were affiliated with is like a big university so people want that on their resume. Call you know and and they'll ask you all the time like ready to go full time. I'm not a good because the pay cuts actually pretty substantial. Actually and the more you look around you realize how much I mean. You get paid shit for being fulltime faculty comp- compared to you know being physician doing your thing which is fucked up because it becomes like. What do they call that? What do they call that? When when when like You take all the smart people brain. What do you call it? Brain trust no like like for example in India like. We're taking all their engineers. What do you call that? There's something were man it'll come to me. It's basically the siphoning of smart people and you get that same sort of thing and Ben in medicine right like if you pay somebody enough money but they also are very good educators. It sucks that there's GonNa be a draw on that source of people that potentially could really start to realize the importance of good training. And if you come out and you're fucking in debt you're in over your head you know half a million dollars in just student loans can hanging over your head and you've given up so much of your life already in your you know you're in your early thirties. You Know God forbid early forties and did a bunch extra training fellowships and Shit. And then you're behind the eight ball. You're running out of time in terms of just being able to start a family and you know I I gotTa make money to pay the ship back. And there's no real room tax really teach and the cost of your income so it's just a real first world problem for sure but a real problem nonetheless you know. I think it's a it puts people in a precarious position to decide to. I really like to teach. Because it's fucked up. You'll get a kick out of this in my office. I have my resident teacher of the year plaques and I only put them up because I had them in a box and I was cleaning up around the house and I opened it and I was like going to hang this up in my house so let on. Ebay would buy that somebody. Would you know they would i? Would I would just do it. Yeah a funny story when when I was an Undergrad here The guy that lived in our apartment had got his PhD but he didn't live there anymore and they mail this PhD to our apartment. We opened it and it was on on a fucking in a frame and everything and we're kind of fucked up but we we just took a sharp. We crossed his name out and and we put our name multiple name off the news and we part one diploma. Is that work? Yeah it was a team effort. It was a team effort. Phd degree right. Play certified I I T I. We were so. That's funny because I I really I I had these these plaques and I didn't it's not that I didn't want him I did. It felt weird to have them. What am I gonNA do with them? I I would feel bad throwing them away but I also don't want them So they had him in the car and randomly. I took them down and I had him sitting in a next to my desk at work and finally one day. I was just like you know what I'm just going to put him up and dude when I tell you that I was shocked. That PEOPLE CARED. It was kind of weird to me. How much people cared like? I'd be talking to people and I could see them looking over my shoulder at the wall and like that they would change like so many times. I saw like a change in their posture or Where the conversation was going or it was just weird. It was really weird. I thought man. When is this guy going to teach me sounds? Fucker has awesome here every day. Teach me Shit. I just got these on Ebay out to Peter Chain. These are funny because the way that it's set up in the place that I'm working at now you know. We don't even have like offices. It's like straight up like all the doctors and providers or like little cubicles. So they I think I may have told you that it's like they gave me this employee of the month award and they're like we've never in our entire time as a hospital ever gave this award. Local tenants person like your substitute teacher right. So it's like you know the substitute teacher getting face. The the people who are booking full-time soy based the bar is very low looked up. They're like no we like this guy who's not here on. Decca like they're like we just felt like you know we could not give it to you because all the staff loves you. We keep getting unsolicited compliments about you. From patients patients are only requesting to see you so we felt like we had to give you this and I have that you know pinned up in my cubicle. Like which near. Nobody will ever see. Maybe I should sell it on Ebay. Maybe start fucking now. But that's it's a bit of a sort of vote of confidence internally to get shit like that like I had something sort of similar like an employee acknowledgment thing in the hospital as a which they're not supposed to give because technically we're not employees at the same sort of feeling like that's cool that's cool especially when you're not fishing for that's I think that's what makes it better. I told YOU IN MED school. We used to have those. What were they called like strong recognition or something like a strong work award or some shit. Anyway I caught a resident when I was a med student. Giving those cards to patients like name already filled out like really fishing. And you know he didn't say like Oh. Please give me five stars. Would everybody would be like. Oh here you know this is Just slipped into them. Live like you know like buying drugs slick even more sinister than that and more sinister than that. It was like you know. And if you were happy with your service you fill one of these out. It helps out but it helps you out. Like is what he said and I remember being like that's gross like N- yeah why. Why would you even want that award if you did get it like? It's not like you might as well like put mints on Their Pillow. And then your car like that's not cool man. I just remember being kind of blown away by it. Like wow but yeah these like even like these top. Dr Awards are just bullshit. You know you're always trip out on those Like when you're on a flight those what you know what I'm talking about like the Yes man. Yeah yeah and it's got like the best doctors award or recognition thing and it's always got dudes tailored suits. Yeah exactly yeah. It's always so funny to me. I wish I knew more about pens. Because they're always holding pen. I bet you that pens expensive to like fuck everything about this. It's like a Mont Blanc. Yeah yeah everything about. It is so pretentious. I'm like fucking assholes but that being said if I got a phone call telling me I was going to be in one. I'd be there. I don't know man I think it's it's sort of gives me like this. Mother Theresa Complex like I had these these patients that they're good people you know. Most of them are hardworking. People honest people They're probably. It's probably not in the cards for them to be millionaires anytime soon. Or someone got some pretty rough gigs. You know had a rough life and it's it's funny because I I'll.

"Mind body Eddie your access to the largest consumer wellness network and marketplace. Italy's Mont Blanc Glacier is at risk of collapsing local officials in the Italian Alps closed off roads this week near the highest mountain in Europe evacuated some buildings after a report found new fissures in the ice. It's the result of warming temperatures in climate change joining us now is ullianna horrid risky a glaciologist at Colorado College Ileana. Welcome thank you so much. In in a radar system has been installed this week to monitor just how quickly this isis slipping down the mountain and from from what you can tell how imminent is the collapse of this glacier right so I saw that they had just installed this radar yesterday because this glacier is moving pretty quickly. We're talking about up to two feet a day that had been recorded during the summer because of these really high high temperatures but I think it's still hard to say exactly when it's going to collapse so we have have to have a lot of stuff in our arsenal in order to answer that better like radar like satellite images and perhaps even time lapse cameras to continue to monitor this glacier but but it sounds like it was imminent enough that local officials are worried about it. They're taking actions to keep people safe absolutely yes so the thing. Is that the fracture action in this particular glacier. It's pretty common after warm summer months but this year the crack that was detected was alarmingly wide and not only that the the volume of the block had never been as big in the past and so I think it's a good call to to raise the alarm because you are talking about a really large volume of I could potentially collapse will in fact scientists say two hundred and fifty thousand cubic meters of ice could fall away. I have a hard time even picturing what that is.

"A permanent cloud cover most of the year. Yes. And that was only apparent a hundred years later, they, they in fact, it things nobody had in Europe done. They climb the mountains that were taller than Mont Blanc in Europe and be fifty years before the great mountaineers I made that sent. So they were making discoveries that they never even imagined. And in fact, they ran up against altitude sickness which no one understood. In fact, I think you said it was named for being poisoned by SIL, the vapors of, of silver mining. Yes, they still call it in, in Peru. Roach, which is from a casual word. Meaning the or we now understand that it's the lack of oxygen, but they certainly did not understand what that meant because nobody ever climbed that high. So when they climbed up to the top of the volcano through snow cold all the time, they don't have the right clothes. They don't have the right equipment for this. They're doing this all in the name of science. It's quite mad. And they each of them are struck by outed sickness there. They eat on. What are they boiled rice and a and some meat that the Indians would carry up now of Americans fruit enough to descend every night and not spend the time in the tents where you would continue to suffer from altitude sickness. But our bold, European scientists, they believed that they were superior to the native Americans and so they stayed in camp. And then the people whom they often disregarded. In fact, at some point, Larry, I think you mentioned that luck on demean and others. Characterize them in their diaries animals are near animals. They, they look down on the Indians for four group of scientists so intent on making exact measures of the earth. They almost seemed intent to miss measure, the people, the natives in the in the land. They had had really no interest in understanding the culture or adapting to it. So yes, they they. Characterize the Indians who, who are taking their equipment from one to another very often cooking their meals as being as you said, leasing net. And at the same time they would come across these incredible ruins of the Inca, and the pre Inca which defied explanation. We there was nothing like this in Europe. They greatly admired, the rule of the Inca, ruins without a trace of irony understanding that it was the direct descendants of these great engineers, who. In fact, were helping them with their expedition you mentioned because it's not in the diary. But you suppose that they learn from the Indians, the mixture of cocoa drink and coca leaves that that relieve the altitude sickness. Is that correct? It seems logical to me that they would do that. That's something that any traveler to, to today's Peru Ecuador Chile and who? Go up into the mountains, one of the first things you do is learn that chewing. Cocoa leaves helps to relieve altitude sickness. It is like you said, not mentioned in any of the diaries. But it's most likely that they had picked up that habit because they were able to operate for many, many weeks of where your average person would be it would be almost impossible, I think, in the first six months, they do, just two triangles, and then four more in early thirty seven but they thirty eight they expected to be done by mid thirty eight and they're far from their, their, their hopes also the expedition is has personality problems. Larry mentioned that Gordon, had what you'd have to say it imperious mind, whereas Geir and lock onto mean were bosom pals. And in fact, one of the genius of this organization was these two men. Learn to work together, though. They came from different traditions. Yes. And they, they, they were able to communicate with go, Dan, as I mentioned because of these two Spanish officers by thirty seven when they're about halfway down the, the chain of triangles had essentially been replaced as the defacto leader of the expedition by boo Geir. He was unable to get his assistance to work with him. He his measurements was still important, but he wouldn't provide them. So one of the Spanish offices worked with go. Dan, while the other one work with Laconda mean and blue Geir. So with that model they, they were able to make their way down the Andes by nineteen seventeen thirty nine they were able to complete the triangulation. They in the town of Cuenca, which they thought was going to be the end. They assume they would have just a few more operations to do. And everything would be over. Nothing could be further from the truth. Right. What we have here is an expedition that develops a story sidebar at some point, Dan, I believe returns to Kito and back. There is a physician who came out with them and make a difference in those days between doctors and surgeons and physicians Giusto is that how you say his name, correct? And you so is making observations at the same time law. Come to mean has already written up anecdotal observations of the Cinquecento tree. What is that? Larry, the Shona was the only source of a powder, Colt quinine, that was at the time, the, the, the cure for malaria, we now know today that it poisons, the parasite that causes malaria. They didn't know what it did at the time and more to the point they didn't know what was good powder. And what was bad powder? Sometime. It worked. Sometimes it's the bark of the tree, and it has to be mixed, and it has to be in a certain substances and they couldn't tell because they it was just bark. And they couldn't tell what, what the what the Trina natural state was. So they didn't know what the what the right bark was. And what the wrong was ju-. So I l- condoms was sent by juice. Oh to make some initial investigations. But it was you so who in a an expedition with some several other members spent several months in the forests of an area known as in the south of what is today of the of Kito, examining, the Trine its natural state, and he wrote up, what today would have been considered a seminal memoir, on what the, the different types of bark was how you distinguish between the good quinine, the bad quinine. This was. Goal this would and this would have been gold for the Europeans had those out survey. Sion's actually been transmitted back to Europe. You so was on the way to becoming a brilliant, scientists in his own, right? But he lacked vital attribute known as luck it turned out that his, his operations would not be seeing not just within his lifetime. But for almost two hundred years critical, observations, by the way, this Shona tree, quinine, we call it that becomes the source of the liberation of big parts of the world. That is a beleaguered and cursed by malaria, including the American South, including Mediterranean, and that success in the nineteenth century allows America to grow in a fashion that would not have been credible. Just diarrheas loss dot com to me gets credit at the French academy for his observations. Although there quite. Colorful come to mean is a wonderful character. Now back to the expedition when we come back, we're going to first of all show how quickly how carefully these men worked, and how close their observations are. And then the results today here in the twenty first century of his scientific expedition with great hardship and great risks. I'm John bachelor. This is the John Batchelor show. AL.

Is that correct? It seems logical to me that they would do that. That's something. That any traveler to, to today's Peru Ecuador, Chile and who go up into the mountains. One of the first things you do is learn that chewing. Cocoa leaves helps to relieve altitude sickness. It is like you said, not mentioned in any of the diaries. But it's most likely that they had picked up that habit because they were able to operate for many, many weeks, where your your average person would be it would be almost impossible, I think, in the first six months, they do, just two triangles, and then four more in early thirty seven but they thirty eight they expected to be done by mid thirty eight and they're far from their their, their hopes also the expedition is an has personality problems. Larry mentioned that Gordon, had what you'd have to say it imperious mind, whereas boob, Geir, and lock onto mean were bosom pals. And in fact, one of the, the genius of this. Organization was these two men. Learn to work together, though. They came from different traditions. Yes. And they, they, they were able to communicate with go, Dan as I have mentioned because of these two Spanish officers by thirty seven when they're about halfway down the, the chain of triangles had essentially been replaced as the defacto leader of the expedition by boo Geir. He was unable to get his assistance to work with him. He his measurements was still important, but he wouldn't provide them. So one of the Spanish officers worked with Gordon, while the other one worked with Laconda mean and Bulgaria so with that model. They were able to make their way down the Andes by nineteen by seventeen thirty nine they were able to complete the triangulation. They end the town of Cuenca. Which they thought was going to be the end. They assume they would have just a few more operations to do, and everything would be over. Nothing could be further from the truth. Right. What we have here is an expedition that develops a story sidebar at some point go down. I believe returns to Kito and back, there is a physician who came out with them, and they make a difference in those days between doctors and surgeons and physicians ju- cell is that how you say his name, correct? And you so is making observations at the same time law. Condom mean has already written up anecdotal observations of the Senchenko tree. What is that? Larry, the scenario was the only source of a powder, Colt quinine, that was at the time, the, the, the cure for malaria, we now know today that it poisons, the, the parasite that causes malaria. They didn't know what it did at the time. And. More to the point. They didn't know what was good powder. And what was bad powder? Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't, it's the bark of the tree, and it has to be mixed, and it has to be in a certain substances and they couldn't tell because it was just bark. And they couldn't tell what, what the what the tree in. It's natural state was. So they didn't know what the what the right bark was and what the wrong was ju-. So I Laconda me was sent by you so to make some initial investigations, but it was you so who in a an expedition with some several other members spent several months in the forests of an area known as low in the south of what is today of, of Kito examining the tree in its natural state, and he wrote up, what today would have been considered a seminal memoir on what the, the different. Types of bark was how you could distinguish between the good quinine, and the bad quinine. This was goal this would and this would have been gold for the Europeans had those observations actually been transmitted back to Europe. You so was on the way to becoming a brilliant, scientists in his own, right? But he lacked a vital attribute known as luck it turned out that his, his observations would not be seen, not just within his lifetime. But for almost two hundred years critical, observations, by the way, sin, Shona, tree quinine. We call it that becomes the source of the liberation of big parts of the world. That is a beleaguered and cursed by malaria, including the American South, including Mediterranean, and that success in the.

"mont blanc" Discussed on PerfBytes

"Niotis Performance Advisory Council of course if you listen to any of the broadcast from dinosaurs perform last week <hes> as well as all all the tweets that you'll be seeing you would know that we were going to be live right now? Hello Chamonix France lavish. How do I say that Shirley exactly you alone? Does all la all tell us we have <hes> Henrik Henrik Brexit and <hes>. Do you want to give a little introduction of the guys on your side first so with me I have the pleasure and the honor to have and even of course Andreas grabner from penetrates <hes> and of course we have senior tunnel all the but I mean so <hes> today was the first day of the P._A._c. so basically we discover the location <hes> and yeah yeah we're at from one pm we started to the official will come first day of the conference. I think it was a I had a pretty like most most of the presentations that we have today so that is pretty cool and also where we are. I mean right now. It's dark outside but earlier today. Obviously we look at the moment blah long it's amazing and it's actually hard to focus on before. Thank you see that beautiful landscape fantastic and even estimation somewhere like look at that <hes> sunsetting. It's so beautiful and I'm like I was paying tation presentation. No I was I was asking the different speaker if it was the worst to to officially present stuff on when we basically record some some presentation in Goski after after that it makes more sense very cool so we have also on the line with us <hes> Scott more the low test for himself Scott. Where are you right now? In the world. I'm located in southwest Florida in the Tampa location right now in the table location not so far from Disneyworld very close. Maybe an hour and a half now. There is a Disney world also in France right. It's more a Euro Disney Disney but it's not yeah okay good so we're just going to say there's a Disney connection happening not that you guys need to take any responsibility for that connection and of course my longtime co host host James Pulley who is somewhere down South Carolina. I'm guessing yes very good so once again <hes> we did this last year when you guys were in Scotland in Scotland and a joint castle in Scotland <hes> having whiskeys and we connected elected again Wilson more may be joining us he he joined us a remotely and we had a bunch of other folks so <hes> Chemmy France you said is the home of the Mont Blanc Maublanc <hes> which I only know is like Super Fancy Hoity toity pens that have the little more blunt. They're black thought that's what I thought. That's what we were talking about. There's just so you guys are saying there's just a giant Penn is standing out in the mountains somewhere busy. We're looking at a tense and didn't it didn't entirely that's and then you try to ski on them and they're really not right so that would be cool so let's open up. Why don't you guys <hes> tell tell us a little bit about <hes> how the day went and what were the topics you covered and then we'll open it up for any questions? Here is the way we structure factor the agenda at tried to organize the first day around will the topics that will talk about automation devops or anything any thinks that could automate <unk> tuning systems or <hes> and implementing before the S. Code <hes> bringing performance. There's a shift left to approach in shift rights so there was basically a theme behind so I think it was <hes> was I mean well-connected different. Komo <unk> your opinion <hes> it was very interesting to me that many of the talks actually as you're saying we're connected in similar topics up to a point that <hes> I got worried that some of the things that I was gonNA token mine were already being discussed but it was very interesting that it seems like most of the concerns concerns or <hes> tasks that we're following or discussing are in the same night and need insurance in the performance world. I know cygnus somebody else joining Wilson. Thank you listen. Mar Joins US Wilson. Where are you located right now well right now? I guess this New Jersey somewhere okay cool so we've got some east coast <hes> which exit the New Jersey Road Top that yeah so <hes> Henrik who were <hes> as you guys started the present. Who else is there with you? WHO's <hes> <hes> WHO's attending to pack not necessarily on the <hes> on <hes> that presented today who like who kicked us off having a thought I want to have one of our break leaked I mean it says a partner but <hes> we've been working with him to meet since the beginning beginning of the company I think yes stained shipper so I think he always loved the way he presenting things he likes to share and and learn <hes> people about performance so I think and I thought it was great to have him opening the conference? It was rue grit could yet you think he also a somebody else. Made a couple of comments around the white averages are not goodbye need to look at the raw data in order to actually identify good parents of a good performance engineer is really looking at the pattern and what we can do with it. I mean the raw data we can do this and I think he made a great point. Stare and kicked get off with be at Stevens. I mean you know White Ball Stephen out so he he was also there and you have to so so he was the second one so he was. I thought it was going to talk about astrology because the top of their name the name was constellation so but it was really interesting especially if he's talk I mean he brought seven different patterns. He has detected analyzing raw data and end at took some drawings and I think we will shed a slice as somehow people that can register for the recordings will see it but what I thought was really cool and I just need Utah Run through my notes here. He talked of the Tornado Pattern yes and actually how you kinda visualize that the raw data in terms of he's is looking at the response time and instead of plotting response times points on a two dimensional chart he basically applauded start in an time <hes> in connected the lion and you could it's hard to wrap novice on the podcast but he had this pattern where if you have any problem with a queuing system in the beckons you'll obviously see a requests getting longer and longer and longer <hes> and therefore you can in in the way he charted you could immediately see Tornado <hes> kind of shape Apia <unk> interesting. He like seven patterns internal initial Dessau visualizes data any always gave real life examples and I think that was that was <unk> very eye-opening <hes> presentation. I think also hindred you said some of these charts city show will be great to have in our products at the Mansa so cool stuff so so I think it's worthwhile to point out that last year of a large number of discussions were on artificial intelligence Andy this year Donald betrays perform artificial intelligence was was was huge and now we have this pattern library coming together <hes> from the first couple of presentations stations of of different <hes> data patterns design patterns things of that nature that would lend itself quite well to rule sets for artificial artificial intelligence systems exactly and I think we had an I think I know what you're alluding to because we've been talking about this for for several years. How performance experts birt's <unk> <unk> extensions models rule sets up products and <hes> amion actually last week at the forum at the final presentation presentation from burned? He was actually a kind of explaining that we are opening up the platform for external folks to build extensions ancient so-called applications that run natively in dinosaurs were something like this can actually be implemented and think about that data analysis for that Tornado uh-huh pattern for an end production APP that that involves a queuing system of some nature whether it's in the cloud or or local and you start to see that pattern developed and then and essentially you get a notification there we go exactly and I think another thing what was really cool coming to the last presentation <hes> Steffano they funnel <unk> <unk> he he's from a movie and they have this cool <unk> is called and they basically use machine machine learning to automatically test different settings in <unk> inauguration settings reading the J._V. and containers and operating system to <hes> A and automatically Laura and optimize systems just trying different combinations and double the overall roll the number of transactions per second to able to the system and the men basically the activists basically orchestrating tests in and changed making the changes on environments in making decisions on the results studies done the low test after twenty hours of tests. Basically the system system is able to double the level before so otherwise amazing it testing all the possible permutations for the configurations until it found like the very best in on their student and allies which was very vessel that not all to us I really yeah and think especially because he said in there's no best practice for the best setting that can be applied to every system in the world because the system in the world has different low patterns in different application behavior and therefore they're for more of just learning a system than trying things out <hes> and then optimizing it was fantastic. It was even worse. He's only twice. I thought he said like sometimes five six five six. It was five. Thanks Improvement Yeah. It was cool. These are things that you would in the old days have to go for six weeks worth of J._V._M.. Tuning the garbage collection tuning and all of that stuff which is kind of nuts but you if you can roll the whole operating system and stay no No not jumping out unless they're on muted his sort of covers I yeah I think that this whole thing with an artificial intelligence changes the role that performance engineers have right and especially if it's deriving rules out of it you know so hours of the analysis is isn't as important now with or what is our new new role in this whole scenario yeah do we become stewards and inventors of the patterns <hes> or <hes> or the rules themselves and and that becomes kind of the marketplace of intellectual property there was <hes> interesting question that was posted. Ah about the group or understanding that you have to have a were personally. I haven't played much as I would like to and it was like how much do you need to know were understandable. Start Leveraging these tools and I think that for performances <unk> it will start to be <hes> another another requirements to really understand how these A._I.. Configuration on machine learning how to work it and integrated with everything which is pretty amazing album sorry I was going to say Andy and James we were. We were down in in <hes> with Stephen Townsend. We're down in New Zealand and I remember there was a lot of the different users down. There used Tableau for the data visualization. That's something that's Stephen brought move into his presentation as well as was he a tableau user. I mean I mean more than <hes>. Stephen has been the mentor of Stephen is staying sustain sustain give him his his passion about Tableau and Stephen <hes> yeah he's B.. E. became addicted to that the <hes> and ah some of those visualizations I can imagine are quite difficult to render so <hes> that that's an advanced tool that you would use to get get to those places.
