Performance in the Javascript Era by Benjamin Howarth

More than just tips, tricks, metrics and clicks, from code to cloud and back again - performance on the web has gone way beyond "oh just put your CSS in the header and your Javascript in the footer".

More often approached as an afterthought, this primer will cover some essential ground on how to approach measuring website and web app performance, along with some quick wins, through to some more lower-level technical nuances with HTTP2, compression, and header management, and finally putting all our tools together to comprehensively and continuously keep a watchful eye on your performance metrics.

Topic will include ASP.NET and NodeJS samples, and slides & code will be made available on Github well in advance.

About the speaker:
Benjamin Howarth is a freelance ASP.NET architect & senior developer, specialising in open-source content management systems. His experience in high-scale high-performance websites has been a strength over the past 5 years, working for Tesco, FIA Formula E, Universal Music Group, and Manchester Airport Group.

Lessons from the Azure API Management trenches by Eldert Grootenboer

API Management has a lot of functionality, but it's not always clear when to use what. In this session, we will go into setting up an API Management architecture, inspired by real-life use cases. We will see how we can expose and protect our services, which policies help make our life easier, and how to handle our application lifecycle management.
