Training: "Making your Web Site faster"

Time: Monday 09:00 - 12:00

Location: Rutherford Room, Fourth Floor


"What is fast and how much faster can we be?". Many typical industry leading sites can be sped up by up to 2 seconds following easy to implement best practices. 2 seconds that make a huge difference in the competitive advantage.

In this tutorial we dig into "How the Web Works under the Hood", "What's going on in the Browser" and "How your Coding affects Load Time, Rendering Behavior and Page Interactivity". After digging into the architecture we look at "Key Web Performance Metrics", their importance and how to track and optimize them. We look at good and bad example web sites to learn how to best optimize our end-user perceived performance using free available tools for the major browsers. Once optimized it is important to stay optimized. Automating performance analysis is no rocket science. We learn how to implement an automated performance analysis environment to identify new problems as they appear

NB: If possible bring your laptop as we will be able to do some hands-on. Preferred would be a Laptop with a Windows OS on it.
