In our fifth meetup we will have two one hour sessions about profiling web apps and HTTP. The first session will be all about how to use Chrome DevTools to profile your web app and increase its performance. The second session will be all about hidden gems in the HTTP communication protocol that we all use. 

Agenda:

17:30-18:00 - Gathering and Networking

18:00-19:00 - Performance Profiling with the Chrome Dev Tools

19:00-19:15 - Break

19:15-20:00 - Things Every Developer Should Know About HTTP

Title:  Performance Profiling with the Chrome Dev Tools
Abstract: Learn to use the amazing memory and CPU profiling tools bundled with Chrome to improve your site’s performance. We’ll demonstrate a few common techniques you can use to analyze your own sites right away and give you some pointers on how to improve your JavaScript performance analysis skills.

Title: Things Every Developer Should Know About HTTP 
Abstract: HTTP is by far the most common application layer protocol in the world. You have been using it in your applications for as long as you can remember. But do you know how it really works? Have you ever wondered how HTTP caches really work? What the heck is HTTP Chunked transfer and what is it good for? And how many HTTP status codes there really are?
In this session we will take a look at some of HTTP’s hidden gems and see how we can unleash them to enhance our HTTP based applications.

    Will the profiling session will be on apps as well or just for sites?

    November 17, 2013

    • Noam K.

      It's a bit difficult to draw the line between an app and a site these days. But if you can run it inside Chrome, you can probably profile it. Specifically, I'm going to talk about the Timeline and Profiles tabs in the Chrome DevTools.
