Do you wonder if your website could be faster? Have you longed to have a performance guru give you pointers on how to improve your site? Like to reduce latency for your users but unsure what needs to be done? Confused about which optimizations provide the greatest bang-for-the-buck? Then this workshop is for you.
Bring your website to the Meet4Speed session where some of the leading proponents of web optimization and measurement will provide practical, step-by-step help on ways to improve the performance of your site. A handful of select sites will be showcased with each site being worked on by a facilitator and a team of attendees.
If you are interested in understanding the details of website optimization and participating in a workshop aimed at improving site performance, please RSVP. If you’d like to have your site be used in the workshop, please provide the site URL and a note on any performance improvements you have tried here (https://www.google.com/moderator/#15/e=e908a&t=e908a.41). We will follow up with you and request additional info, if your site is selected.
