Dive Into Performance
You drank the performance koolaid and want to optimize your site. You learned all the established WPO best practices by heart. Now it's time to dive in. But - how do you actually do it? Join Steve Souders as he navigates a path through the performance landscape using the latest as well as classic tools to measure, analyze, and fix the performance of popular websites. In this talk Steve answers questions like: How do I measure and record performance? How accurate are YSlow and PageSpeed? How do I compare performance behavior across browsers? This is a hands-on talk featuring demos of over a dozen performance tools available today.
Steve is the Head Performance Engineer at Google where he works on web performance and open source initiatives. He previously served as Chief Performance Yahoo!. Prior to that Steve worked at General Magic, WhoWhere?, and Lycos, and co-founded Helix Systems and CoolSync. Steve is the author of High Performance Web Sites and Even Faster Web Sites. He is the creator of YSlow, one of the top 25 Firefox add-ons. He's created numerous performance tools and services including the HTTP Archive, Cuzillion, Jdrop, ControlJS, and Browserscope. He serves as co-chair of Velocity, the web performance and operations conference from O'Reilly, and is co-founder of the Firebug Working Group.
