Harder Better Faster Stronger

How compression, reduction, and expiration can improve your site.

We will examine some of the things you can do to make faster more responsive web sites.
Server side as well as coding and style techniques will be examined and discussed.
Discussion points will include GZIP compression, code minification and expires headers.

Who: David Engel is a PHP and .NET developer with a Computer Engineering Degree from the University of Manitoba. David currently is the Applications Developer for Maxim Truck & Trailer where he works with open source and Microsoft technologies to develop both internal and external applications.

How: We’ll start the meet-up with pizza and networking at around 5:30. David will present at 6:00 and will try to wrap up by around 7:00 to get you home at a decent hour. Feel free to stick around after the presentation, however, as some of us like to carry our discussions over to King Street for refreshments.

    I'm sorry. I can't attend due to a scheduling conflict with the New Media Manitoba event on videography. Next time!

    Heya, worth coming down to see what's going on! I'm likely a total newbie compared to anyone with professional development, however my solo'd creations are hopefully making progress after 8+ months of focus.

    I wanna mention that there will be an optimization focused talk at the upcoming WordCamp.

    http://2013.winnipeg.wordcamp.org/speakers/#peter-chester is a description of the talk for those interested.

    The guy is a successful WordPress entrepreneur, part of Modern Tribe: http://tri.be/

    I hope some of you can make it to that event too!

    Sounds awesome, and yes... very good choice of topic. I'll be there for sure in the event of bad weather.
