    Excellent presentation. I learned a lot. Gil analyzed real data from selected audience web sites including mine which provided interesting and relevant insights. Gil went deep into various aspects of web performance and handled well questions from several technical experts from vendors of automatic tools for web performance.

    The presentation seemed to cover 3 general topics - need for web op, overview of analysis and tools, drill down to technical. I would have shortened part 1 (the need) for this audience. Everyone there is on board with the need for optimizing web performance. Part 2 was very helpful. Lots of interesting links. Part 3 - too technical for me but others in the audience came to life at that point. Overall it had value and Gil is organized, extremely knowledgeable, and very personable.
