High Performance Mobile
For our second meetup in the South Bay, we are very excited to have Steve Souders (http://twitter.com/souders) present about High Performance Mobile:
"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."
