Jason Grigsby and John Keith come to WebVisions with a hands-on workshop on “Performance Optimization for Web and Mobile” where they’ll walk through the steps to optimize a site, demonstrate techniques with a real use case and provide attendees with the tools needed to optimize their site. Whether building traditional web sites, AJAX applications or cutting edge mobile web tools, speed is paramount:
- Speed = Perception — Both of a site and the organization behind it.
- Speed = Money — Every 100ms costs Amazon 1% of sales.
- Speed = Mobile — Connection speeds and latency make mobile much slower.
- Speed = Environment — Data centers are huge power consumers. Reducing the load on servers is the right thing to do and one way to contribute to a greener earth.
Despite these benefits, most web developers are unaware of the simple techniques that can make web pages load and execute faster.
