On December 14th we have two speakers from Google presenting at our group!

Joshua Marantz will present mod_pagespeed, the new Apache module that
automatically optimizes web content. Matthew Steele will give a sneak
peek at the Page Speed Chrome extension, which brings Page Speed
suggestions to users of the Chrome browser.

Joshua Marantz is a software engineer at Google, where he serves as
tech-lead of mod_pagespeed, a project to build an open-source Apache
module for automatically improving website latency and reducing
bandwidth consumption by rewriting HTML, CSS, Javascript, and Images.
At Google he has also worked on latency improvements in web caching
infrastructure and scalable social networking. Prior to Google, Josh
spent 20 years in the Electronic Design Automation industry, much of
working on accelerated functional simulation. He holds BS and MS
degrees from MIT, in Computer Science and Engineering, and Electrical
Engineering and Computer Science.

Matthew Steele is a software engineer at Google, working on
open-source web performance projects such as the Page Speed SDK, Page
Speed browser extensions, and the Apache module mod_spdy. Matthew
holds BS and MS degrees from MIT in Computer Science. Matthew will
present Page Speed for Chrome, a soon-to-be-released Chrome extension.
This talk will demo the new extension, cover some of the new Page
Speed suggestions, and give an overview of the Chrome APIs that allow
Page Speed to run in Chrome.

This meetup will be held at the same place as the last one, 177 Huntington Avenue in Boston.
