Hergert previously worked for MySpace as a Linux software engineer working on Mono performance tuning who now works for VMware but also works on GNOME development. He is interested in continuing the development of PerfKit for GNOME 3.4 or whatever the future GNOME 3.x release ends up focusing upon improving the developer's experience on the desktop. Additionally, he says, "I have some larger plans with this for more than just profiling, but I'll write about that at a later time when its more formulated in my mind."
Below is a video recorded by Christian that shows off the PerfKit interface when running on Ubuntu's GNOME desktop.
The just-released PerfKit code can be cloned from GitHub.
