We have two fantastic speakers - read on for details!
Speaker #1: Kalvir Sandhu, Caliper.io, founder, serial entrepreneur & guru of performance measurement
Monitoring client side performance to make your users happy
You've finally taken the plunge and built your next hot application in one of the many JS frameworks or libraries out there. You've tested it locally, profiled & tuned it, but how are your customers using that app and what is their experience? How can you see if it sucks in their browser or mobile? Is it making them sad? My talk will help you reveal this information and help you make your users happy.
My talk will explain the new challenges introduced when building a JS app and why measuring performance is still important. It will cover who is using what to monitor and improve applications. I will discuss the techniques in which they work and how developers could build out their own custom metrics using events fired in JS or APIs available in the browser.
Speaker #2: Shawn Jansepar, Mobify, dev lead, hacker, hockey & schwarma lover
Instant & automatic responsive images
The current crop of responsive image solutions are a pain. Developers desperately need a solution that automatically generates smaller images for smaller devices from a single high resolution image - and ideally this automatic solution would only make one request per image and would be 100% semantic and backwards compatible. I will be talking about how you can use Mobify.js to satisfy these requirements using Mobify's free back-end service or a back-end of your choosing, and how browser vendors can improve support for responsive images in the future.
