The forgotten art of Web Performance

A session at WDCNZ 2011

Thursday 14th July, 2011

3:00pm to 3:30pm (NZMT)

We all _know_ that web performance is important. We all want fast broadband, right? What if I told you we can make our websites twice as fast NOW!?!? In this session, John is going to look at some key principles behind web performance that seem to have been forgotten by web developers these days. John will show you some tricks to make your website "Fast by default!".

Also, John will tell us the current state of Web performance in New Zealand. John has been following how fast NZ websites are over the last 3 years. He'll tell us, what we're doing right and what we're doing wrong and how we can fix it.

In a previous life, John was CTO of Indian online auction websites Bidorbuy.co.in and Baazee.com. He learnt how important web performance was for the business and how to make small changes made a big difference to the bottom line.
