January - Mod_pagespeed - Josh Marantz


Joshua Marantz is a software engineer at Google, where he is tech-lead of mod_pagespeed, a project to build an open-source Apache module for automatically improving website latency and reducing bandwidth consumption by rewriting HTML, CSS, Javascript, and Images. At Google he has also worked on latency improvements in web caching infrastructure and scalable social networking. Prior to Google, Josh spent 20 years in the Electronic Design Automation industry, much of it working on accelerated functional simulation. He holds BS and MS degrees from MIT, in Computer Science and Engineering, and Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.

In November 2010, Google launched mod_pagespeed: an open-source Apache module that makes web sites faster by dynamically rewriting HTML, Images, CSS, and JavaScript while serving them. It reduces byte-count, request-count, and restructures web pages to optimize browser behavior. It has been adopted by multiple hosting providers, content delivery networks, and it now powers over 700,000 web sites across 5 server platforms.

Recently the team has focused on improving the mobile experience and we will demonstrate the benefits of automating acceleration on the mobile platform.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
