Performance optimization is a cyclical process. We are constantly learning new ways to optimize, while simultaneously adopting new technologies and techniques that can negatively impact performance. The HTTP Archive provides a great historical record of the technical side of the web, with almost 10 years of history and an ever growing dataset of sites.

During this session Paul will provide a brief overview of the HTTP Archive and then dive into some insights into the adoption of common web performance techniques and some of their measurable impacts. The session will include:

1. An overview of the HTTP Archive
2. An exploration of how various performance best practices are implemented
3. How to get started with your own HTTP Archive analysis
