Hi Everyone,

I would like to make you aware of two upcoming events in the Boston area that you might be interested in:  


#1: Building High Performance Web Applications By Jeff Whelpley

Location: Boston College - Fulton 117

Date: Thursday, April 12th at 5pm 

Description: In a world where Google search results load instantly and hand held devices get more powerful by the day, the bar for website performance is at unprecedented levels. It isn't enough that an application has cool features. It has to be fast. Really fast. If you plan on working in the software industry, you need to understand the basic principles of performance on the web and how to utilize tools and techniques to ensure the products you create will meet customer expectations for speed. In this presentation, Jeff will introduce the high level concepts, get into some real world examples, go over the process of optimization and provide a vision for high performance web applications of the future.
