Often neglected, because not as sexy as (UX) design or Digital Marketing, but possibly more important, the performance of your site. What lies between speedy & bug-free experiences (which users - and therefore site owners find important) - and good coding (which you can not really see) that makes a site perform well? Our three experts share their experiences, findings & solutions.

We will do another AMA (Ask Me Anything) session, in which anything can be asked live, or beforehand, in the great Garage Society venue in Central Hong Kong. Join Digimeet on Tuesday 4th of November from 7-9pm and get your ‘performance’ questions answered by our web experts. --
What is Digimeet? You ask. Three experts respond. Ask us anything digital and get answers from industry specialists. Afterwards, mingle and meet fellow digital professionals. Admission is free but seats are limited.
