Kaushal Dalvi

Ultimate Software

Since he got his first computer at age thirteen, Kaushal Dalvi has been interested in systems and software performance. He spent days researching performance characteristics of different motherboards, CPUs, GPUs, RAM, and disks to configure and overclock them to squeeze the maximum frames per second out of the games he played. Kaushal then built and maintained websites for local businesses, which is how he started learning about performance and reliability. He developed a taste for it, and ten years later he works in the same field, leading teams that deal with workload modeling, test scripting and execution, result and bottleneck analysis and debugging, and much more as the director of quality and performance engineering at Ultimate Software.
