Velocity Conference 2008
My friend Steve Souders (Mr. yslow and author of High Performance Web Sites) is chairing the upcoming Velocity Conference in Burlingame, CA. It's happening on Mon-Tues, June 23-24.
I will be on the Measuring Performance panel with Steve Souders, Earnest Mueller (National Instrument), Ryan Breen (Gomez) and Scott Ruthfield (Whitepages). We'll be talking about what it means to measure performance for Web pages, why it is important, how to do it, various types of methods of measuring and the unique challenges around measuring Web 2.0 applications.
I will also be doing a quick talk in the afternoon on Improving Netflix Performance. The talk is only 15 minutes but I will be sharing our experience with implementing yslow, building a round trip tracer tool and some other cool stats & tools that we will be sharing. Look for a followup blog article on some of this information.
Hope to see you there.
