High Performance Mobile

We have a special event with Steve Souders for GTUG members and Starbucks Dev Team.

Case studies from Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, Netflix, and others testify that making websites faster drives more traffic to your site, improves the user experience, increases revenue, and reduces operating costs. Best practices, tools, and web services abound for improving website performance on the desktop. But where are we when it comes to mobile performance? Join Steve Souders as he presents the latest developments for analyzing mobile performance and creating a faster mobile experience.

Steve works at Google on web performance and open source initiatives. He previously served as Chief Performance Yahoo!. Steve is the author of High Performance Web Sites and Even Faster Web Sites. He is the creator of YSlow, one of the top 25 Firefox add-ons. He's created many other performance tools and services including the HTTP Archive, Cuzillion, Jdrop, ControlJS, and Browserscope. He serves as co-chair of Velocity, the web performance and operations conference from O'Reilly, and is co-founder of the Firebug Working Group. He taught CS193H: High Performance Web Sites at Stanford University.

    Wished it had been clearer it was Mobile Web, rather than "real" mobile. I felt a little like I was at a "High Performance Cobol" meetup.

    I learned quite a bit at the talk. I believe WPO and it's tools should be introduced in schools at the beginning of a designer/developer's education, rather than waiting for the real world of work to enlighten them.

    Very informative and useful, very good presenter. Pizza was good too. Not quiet enough chairs, but the room was packed. :)

    Wow he's really good! Really great at both high-level AND nitty-gritty. I'm actually inspired to rethink our entire mobile-page.
    Thank you to all who put this one on!

    The speaker, Steve Souders, has incredible credentials. I would have liked to have more time spent on mobile performance. Overall, I felt there was too much background, and not enough focus on mobile learnings. The "5 new things" part of the talk should have been the talk, in my opinion. The references shared are good.

    @Michael - is the SeaDroid event on Seattle Tech Calendar? I don't see it there. That's how a number of us that run Seattle based tech events figure out how to avoid scheduling conflicts.

    That being said, in this case the date was speaker driven.

    Seats 45-60 standing room only. We plan pizza for all.

    This is super exciting but it's going to conflict with an advanced Android programming presentation at Seadroid (Concurrency II) on the same day. Since the two are sort of related it will conflict. I'd suggest checking out other high profile Google tech meetup schedules to coordinate these sorts of things. Some of us like to hit all of them!
