Ilya Grigorik (Make The Web Fast team at Google)
Breaking 1000ms Mobile Barrier

Your visitors expect a fast and optimized web experience regardless of the type of network they are on – rightfully so! Delivering instant mobile sites requires careful engineering: we must account for every network roundtrip, tune our servers, and prioritize delivery of critical assets—aka, we need to optimize the critical rendering path to deliver best rendering performance.

In this session we’ll take a deep dive into the lower layers of the web stack to identify the critical performance bottlenecks and then look at optimization tips and tricks that can help us break the “1000 ms time to glass” mobile barrier. As a bonus, we’ll demo some existing and upcoming tools we’ve been working on at Google to help with this entire process.

Ilya Grigorik is a web performance engineer and developer advocate on the Make The Web Fast team at Google, where he spends his days and nights on making the web fast and driving adoption of performance best practices. Whenever not thinking about web performance, Ilya can be found reading, writing, contributing to open-source, and building fun projects like VimGolf and GitHub Archive amongst many others.

He has also written a book: High-Performance Browser Networking (O'Reilly)
What every web developer must know about networking in the browser: impact of latency and bandwidth, TCP, UDP, and SSL performance, performance optimization for mobile networks (latency, battery, and more). Plus, an under the hood look at performance of HTTP 1.1 and 2.0, WebSocket, WebRTC, DataChannel, and other application transports.

Ilya is going to join us via Google Hangout.

Kai Wilken (Cassini Consulting Hamburg)
Logstash, Kibana, Elasticsearch: Im Dreiklang Performance sichtbar machen

Moderne Applikationen setzen auf eine verteilte und skalierbare Architektur, in der unterschiedliche Technologien und Komponenten zum Einsatz kommen. Durch dieses Vorgehen gestaltet sich die Messung und Bewertung von Performance einer gesamten Infrastruktur schwierig.

Mit Hilfe von Logstash, Elasticsearch und Kibana kann man ein zentrales Reporting über die gesamte Infrastruktur aufbauen. (Performance-) Daten aus unterschiedlichen Quellen werden so für eine zentrale Analyse zusammengeführt und transparent dargestellt.

Im Vortrag wird der Aufbau und Nutzen am Beispiel von Performance Reporting (PEx ­ Performance Exposure) der Payback GmbH deutlich gemacht.
