On October 13th, we have a special speaker: Joshua Bixby (@JoshuaBixby), President of Strangeloop Networks and author of Web Performance Today blog will talk about Web Performance Automation.
Depending on who you talk to, performance automation can range from the holy grail of performance tuning to a set of programming hacks that will bring down your website. In reality, it is neither of these things.
Joshua will talk about:
- Different approaches to automation
- Pros and cons of each
- What kinds of performance best practices can or should be automated
- What best practices are better left to hands-on developers
- How “automatic” is performance automation, actually?
- A survey of the automation market today
