Web Performance anti-patterns

  • This location is shown only to members

This month we have Bob Buffone, CTO of Yottaa, our sponsor and a great startup in Web Performance space out of Boston, will talk about performance anti-patterns.

Slow websites are bad for business and bad for users. Learn how to prevent them by learning the patterns for making a website slow. Architecture. Design. Development. Deployment. From conception to production, there are some key points where decisions and paths conspire to produce a slow website. This session will highlight many of the common slow website inducing decisions that are part of most new development or update of websites. You will leave the session with a list of don's that easily translate into dos on how to make a faster website.

Bob at a very early age learned the meaning of "keep it simple, stupid" and how good debugging skills will get you farther faster. Given a broken snowmobile by his uncle, he set out on a mission to get it running. After spending countless hours rebuilding the engine, making endless trips to the parts store and wasting a bunch of money to get the snowmobile running. He discovered the problem all along was simply a hole in the gas tank, and that a $2 tube of epoxy would have fixed the problem in less than an hour. See how that lesson learned has guided his career to Yottaa.

TheLadders is hosting us this month.

    This was my very first meetup and I really enjoyed the topic and the speaker. He presented the information in a clear, organized fashion and welcomed questions.

    Good data and good lessons from it.

    Presentation was a little basic and lacked flow. Should have used videos of the examples in the main deck so the presenter didn't lose their flow by trying to find / work out which example was next.
