Meetup Recap - Photos and Powerpoint
Thursday, June 17, 2010 8:35 AM
First of all I want to thank everyone who attended the meetup last night, I had a great time and I hope you all did too! For those of you who didn't attend here is the general schedule we followed:
7:00-7:20 - Introductions, mingling, pizza and soda (thanks CSN Stores for the food).
7:20-7:45 - Short presentation outlining the discipline of Web Performance. The powerpoint for this talk is now available on the meetup page in the files section.
7:45-8:15 - Audit of www.glad.org, discussion about general performance best practices.
8:15-8:30 - Demonstration of some online tools for measuring/improving performance while looking at www.northeastern.edu.
8:30-9:00 - Demonstration of some of the technologies that CSN uses to monitor and improve site speed, general discussion about the link between performance and SEO.
Some photos of the event are up on the meetup page, and you can find the powerpoint from last night there as well. At our next meetup Andy will give a tutorial on Dynatrace Ajax Edition, an extremely powerful browser based tool that allows you to drill down into every step that the browser takes as it renders your web page. We will also recap the things we learn at Velocity 2010. The location and date for the next meetup are still to be determined, but it will likely be in early July and CSN has offered to host again.
Thanks again, and I hope to see everyone at the next meetup!
