What could be interesting to me is not so much the process one can use 
to detect performance issues and bottlenecks and solve them, but a fully 
automated way to ensure that the performance doesn't degrade with bug 
fixes and other changes.

In other words: we have fantastic test tools to ensure we don't add new 
bugs with each commit; what would you do to make sure you don't kill 
performance with each commit?

A good answer to that alone would be worth a thousand books on performance.
