Web Performance Automation. Joshua Bixby at NY Web Performance

New York Web Performance Group LogoOn 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

  2. Hi Sergey,
    I am attending the “Web Performance Automation” by Joshua Bixby tomorrow at Time and Life at NYC.
    I would like to get an URL from you for the past archives of talks and presentations by your group. I would like to be in touch with your group’s developments. I had chance to read your blogs also.
    I have worked with J2EE for about 9 years and on othe systems before.
