The goal of this sprint is to uncover the "unknown unknowns" blocking Drupal 8 from shipping, performance-wise. The main focus will be on profiling Drupal 8 under a variety of scenarios to determine the next places to start optimizing, then creating issues for these things so that a wider group of folks can work on them.
We're specifically looking for two types of sprinters:
- Finders: Those with profiling experience, using tools like XHProf, Blackfire, and flame graphs, who can analyze profiling data to flag problems and come up with recommendations on optimization targets. Your goal is to keep drilling down until we get to the bottom of what's making Drupal 8 slow.
- Fixers: Those who can both work on existing known performance issues, as well as take direction from the first group and create/review patches to improve areas of performance. We're especially looking for those with experience with things like the routing system, bootstrapping, container services, route access checking, and asset handling.

Hope to see you there!
