I wrote in my performance blog about solving some web performance problems using human computation.
I closed a networking section of Stoyan’s perfplanet calendar with an article about easy cache headers and pointless 304s.
On December 13th, Marcus Westin (@marcuswestin) from Meebo is going to talk about learnings from speeding up Meebo bar.
It’s a holiday session so come and win Amazon Kindle, courtesy of Catchpoint!
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
