Joshua Bixby (@JoshuaBixby (http://twitter.com/JoshuaBixby)), President of Strangeloop Networks (http://www.strangeloopnetworks.com/) and author of Web Performance Today blog (http://www.webperformancetoday.com/) will talk about Web Performance Automation.
Depending on who you talk to, performance automation can range from the holy grail of performance tuning to a set of programming hacks that will bring down your website. In reality, it is neither of these things.
Joshua will talk about:
Different approaches to automation
Pros and cons of each
What kinds of performance best practices can or should be automated
What best practices are better left to hands-on developers
How “automatic” is performance automation, actually?
