QCon is a practitioner-driven conference designed for technical team leads, architects, and project managers who influence software innovation in their teams.

Presentation: "Mobile Web Performance - Getting & Staying Fast!"

Track: Bleeding Edge HTML5 & JavaScript - Taking the Web Platform to the Next Level / Time: Thursday 11:30 - 12:20 / Location: Mountbatten Room

Websites that are fast and smooth are critical for a good user experience and increasingly we expect sites to perform as well on our mobile phone as they do on our laptop.

But the mobile web isn’t just a small screen experience, it can be a flakey network, slow processor, low memory experience and this presents huge challenges to us as developers.

Digging into networks, browsers and the way we build sites, we’ll illustrate how these factors affect visitor experience, and take a look at some of the latest techniques for measuring and improving performance.
