Now that seems to have recovered from their DDoS attack, if you're planning to attend next week's session, please RSVP soon.

Speaker #1: Solmaz Abbaspour
Title: Performance Testing in Continuous Integration Environments

After months of work we have achieved our goal of continuous deployment. In the past, production deployments could be delayed due to last minute performance issues introduced by changes to the codebase. In this presentation I’ll walk you through the tools integrated in our build process which support automated performance test and early discovery of issues.
After accomplishing her master’s in IT eCommerce, Solmaz started working as a QA engineer in an e-banking application provider company. After a couple of dramatic performance failures, she volunteered to look into the application performance where she found her passion à performance and optimization!
Currently, she serves as a Performance Engineer at Move Inc., focusing on web performance on the website. Being a fan of automation along with seeing the discomfort of the traditional time consuming performance test procedure has passed her towards performance testing automation.

Speaker #2: Ben Last
Title: What are you going to do next? Prefetching web assets for fun and profit
Optimizing web pages and shrinking assets like Javascript and CSS will only get you so far: they still need to be downloaded. But what if, while your customer is reading one page, you could pre-fetch the assets of the next page before they even click? At Mobify, we've been exploring ways to predict what assets will be needed and prefetch them using the time between pages. We'll talk about ways to watch web traffic and build simple, fast models that make useful predictions about what to pre-fetch. As with anything, it's more complicated to do than to it sounds...
Ben Last has been writing back-end code for websites since the mid 1990s and remembers using Mosaic and Perl CGI scripts. He's recovered now.
