Web Performance: Beginner to Expert to Crazy Person*
There’s no such thing as fast enough. You can always make your website faster. This talk will show you how.
The very first requirement of a great user experience is actually getting the bytes of that experience to the user before they they get tired and leave.
In this talk we’ll start with the basics and get progressively insane. We’ll go over several frontend performance best practices, a few anti-patterns, the reasoning behind the rules, and how they’ve changed over the years. We’ll also look at some great tools to help you.
I have given this talk at a few conferences before (ParisWeb, IPC Munich, Midwest.IO & the Boston Web Performance Meetup) and have had very good reviews at all of these (video links are below).
I have spoken before at several conferences including the first iteration of Opensource Bridge. Other conferences include FOSS.IN, FREED.IN, Ubuntulive, Linux Symposium, PHP Quebec, ConFoo, FOSDEM, IPC, WebDU, Velocity and JSConf. Most of my presentation material is available on slideshare at http://www.slideshare.net/bluesmoon

- Title: Using Julia & D3 to analyse web performance data
- Track: Chemistry
- Room: B204
- Time: 4:45 – 5:30pm
If you’ve always wanted to play around with D3 or Julia, or both, this talk will get you up to speed very quickly. Using web performance data as the vehicle, and an aim to extract meaningful information from it, we will explore both Julia and D3 and come up with some fun visualizations that may not be possible using only one of these tools.
