Who are we?

We are the Belgium Web Performance Group. We meet monthly to discuss various topics related to Web Performance, both front-end and back-end. We are one of the local entity as you have already many in the world (San Francisco, New York, etc...)

Why is this so important?

Multiple studies have shown a direct correlation between web site performance and the bottom line:

  • +100ms-1% sales (Amazon) *
  • +400ms-5-9% full-page traffic (Yahoo! Autos front page) **
  • +500ms-20% searches (Google) ***







At the same time web pages are growing at a increasing pace and getting heavier and heavier:























This makes this topic very hot and important, especially during the economic downturn when every penny gained from higher user engagements or saved from lower hardware or bandwidth costs matter a lot.





Join our group and meet all the people who care about their sites' performance and are happy to share their knowledge, the tools, techniques, and magic tricks of web site performance optimization.

First meetings will be setup soon. Just join the group for now in order to be kept aware.
