“The path transactions take is growing in complexity with microservices and APIs. Each step on the path adds delay, and we will need to develop the tools and skills to quickly identify bottlenecks and poor design.” -- Andrew Lee
Andrew Lee is a performance engineer for DXC Technology in the United Kingdom. He has over 26 years of experience creating performance models for application and system architectures of many types, from avionics to healthcare to law enforcement. He has a deep understanding of the performance life cycle and the implications of design decisions across all technologies.
Andrew is recognized for his ability to assess and solve complex performance problems. He has applied his skills on large-scale, complex systems including fingerprinting systems in the United States and the United Kingdom, data networks for military aircraft and a national healthcare system.
For his work on the healthcare system, Andrew received a Passion Award, contributing his expertise to a team of technical experts that diagnosed the system’s most complex technical issues. He is also the recipient of a Client Excellence Award, where he was a key member of the team investigating and resolving client system performance issues.
Andrew holds an Upper Second Class B Eng in Information System Engineering from the University of Surrey. He is also a Chartered Engineer with the Institution of Engineering and Technology. He is the creator of Tikker, the Performance Engineer’s Stopwatch, which can be used for measuring response times of applications.
Since 2013, Andrew has been the manager of the UK&I performance engineering practice for DXC, where he has served an essential role as both a mentor and role model to other members of the team. He regularly blogs about performance engineering and modeling on his website at www.1202performance.com.
