18.00: Open doors

18.30: Food & drinks

19.00: Thierry Schellenbach - Fashiolista

Performance metrics for a social network

 19.30: Short break

19.45: Aaron Peters

Using the WebPagetest API

The WPT API offers many useful methods for better understanding and optimizing website speed. Aaron will show examples of how you can use WPT beyond the single page test and give tips on what to use, what not and how interpret results.

Please give us your feedback

This will be our 6th WPO meetup. So we thought it is time to ask your feedback about the meetings we organized so far. We would like hear from you what you think about the topics, speakers, accomodation etc. Please fill in our survey, it will only take a few  minutes and it will help us to improve the meetups.

    I have always had a love affair for really smart people. Tonight I had the pleasure of being amongst many at a the "Metrics Driven Optimization" meet up. Thierry Schellenbach's (CTO, Fashiolista) presentation was gorgeous and my conversation with Rick van Hattem (Lead System Architect, Fashiolista) invigorating. Thank you Peter van Eijk, Jeroen Tjepkema, Samira Salman, Hyves and O'Reilly. Inspiring evening. Great people.

    Good concise overview what is used at Fashionlista, and what can be used in the API.

    The first presentation was quite interesting to see how a startop uses different tools to optimize developing for speed. On both levels dev and ops working together. The second presentation was brought a litle to negative to my taste. Focus seemed to be on things missing wpt and less on how the api works and can be used in a positive way.
