Perf Like a Pirate!

  • Sep 19, 2014 · 5:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

It's international talk like a pirate day again and you know what that means! We're going to talk perrrrrforrrrrmance at SFHTML5! We have a great lineup this year and we'll talk about performance more broadly with four talks; two about Web performance and two about Android performance. This event will be live streamed and recorded on the Google Developers YouTube channel.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oP7at3rtLwk

Talk #1: COLT MCANLIS—Efficient battery use on mobile
Battery is a sacred resource on mobile; limited in capacity, and hard to understand, this resource can be brutally mis-managed causing lamentations for your users. This talk will cover some troublesome design patterns on mobile devices, and talk about some new tools that can help you track down, and improve, battery usage problems.

Colt McAnlis is a Developer Advocate at Google focusing on Games and Performance; Before that, he was a graphics programmer in the games industry working at BlizzardMicrosoft (Ensemble)Petroglyph, and an Adjunct Professor at SMU Guildhall. Recently, he’s a UDACITY course instructor on HTML5 games and a Book Author. When he's not working with developers, Colt spends his time preparing for an invasion of giant ants from outer space. You can follow Colt on G+Twitter, or his Blog

Talk #2: ILYA GRIGORIK—News from the W3C webperf-landia

Requests getting lost at sea or need better and more careful handling? Error Logging and Beacon APIs will help. Wondering about the network weather? Network Information API is a work in progress. Finally, trying to chart a faster navigation course? Resource Hints should help... We'll take a quick tour of the latest perf-related specs, their use cases, and implementation status.

Ilya Grigorik is a web performance engineer and developer advocate at Google, where his focus is on making the web fast and driving adoption of performance best practices.

Talk #3: CHET HAASE—Android graphics performance tips

Animations can be used for good or evil. They can either create rich and compelling experiences that help users understand and use the application, or they can demonstrate just how truly awful the performance of your application is as they stutter and jank all over the screen. "Turn it off! Turn it off!" your users will scream. But there's a better way. Graphics performance is at the heart of smooth and seamless animations: optimize your rendering performance and you can turn your users on instead of having them turn you off.

Chet Haase is the lead of the Android UI Toolkit team, focusing on UI widgets, graphics, performance, animations, and everything else to help make great Android user interfaces. He enjoys taking a break from his real job occasionally to talk about Android at events like this one. His scribblings about Android and less relevant stuff can be found online at google.com/+ChetHaase and @chethaase.

Talk #4: JAKE ARCHIBALD—The ServiceWorker is coming, look busy!
The network is the web's bottleneck when it comes to first render. Most native apps use the network too, but the best ones give us something before they even try to reach out across the internet. Well, the ServiceWorker is coming to level the playing field. We'll look at how you can use ServiceWorker to manipulate caches of content to get on the screen as fast as a native app. We'll also take a look other native features the ServiceWorker enables.

Jake Archibald works in Google Chrome's developer relations team, working primarily on the ServiceWorker specification. He's a big fan of time-to-render optimizations, offline-first, progressive enhancement, and all of that responsive stuff.

  • Nicole L.

    During break after each speaker, you can have people write their questions on a clipboard for Q&A session while the talk is still fresh in their mind. This can maximize Q&A time because you can pick out better questions from the audience :D

    Lots of fun! The talks were fun and informative and in pirate speak. We heard about new developments and got some insight into the inner workings of our favorite techs. The music was great, the food tasty, the venue very nice and the conversations fun. There were also some venders showing off some cool stuff like an Oculus. The whole meetup was well run. Be sure to get to this meetup next time and bring your friends. But if you don't bring your friends you can certainly chat up the nice people all around. Don't forget that the event was recorded so look for the recordings! 8^)

    This was an excellent meetup on so many levels from info to food to music. I may even have to hang out at Macy's to hear the sax player again. Also, glad to hear about courses at udacity.com/google

    Hi all, this event was so well done, the pirate theme and arrangements were impressive in detail & craft.

    By the time I arrived, all the food, badges, badgers, doubloons, and any other shiny baubles, had been spirited to the farthest reaches of the known world, buried in Google's deep pockets by their secret robot army, or dispensed to Davy Jones locker, which is in Beavertown, Pennsylvania. Instead, I ate a plum; yum. Though I didn't know anyone in the massive pirate throng who'd stormed the festivities, I spoke very briefly with a couple of the guys who were presenting talks that evening.

    Thanks very much for a fine and stunning evening! :)

    Ye gotta be SPDY, gotta perf like a pirate

    But how do ye figger where the bottlenecks be?
    Perfin like a pirate ain't done easily
    The modern web's a lot to navigate
    Google gotta crew to help ye relate


    If the mobile web is where yer gonna sail
    Drainin the batry is the ultimate fail
    Makin battries last don't require no analyst
    Just give a listen to Colt McAnlis

    With a yar-har-har and a yo-ho-ho
    Colt is the man to put you in the know
    He ain't gotta pegleg as far as we know
    Just a lotta tips that he gonna show.


    If perfin like a pirate got you lost at sea,
    There be navigatin' beacons that could help ye
    Need network info to set you free?
    Ilya got the booty from the W3C

    With a yar-har-har and a yo-ho-ho
    Ilya's the man to put you in the know
    He ain't Capn Mainroach, and thankfully so
    Got some perfin tips that he gonna show.

    Mcanlis needs to teach the other speakers how to speak like a pirate before next time.

    Ye need the real skinny, for Davy Jones' sake
    But how do ye find the perfin course to take
    Need a map to the treasure, and don't need no fake
