It’s too hot for hair out there, so we’ve asked Lon Ingram to come talk to us
about making websites fast as ⚡ (kung fu fighting, etc). Join us
With the rise of the mobile web, speed has become crucial to success. Users won’t wait around for slow-loading pages and search engines are now punishing sluggish sites. There’s a wealth of ideas out there for cranking up performance, but how do you know where to start? What if you work for days to ship an optimization that doesn’t really pay off? In this talk, you’ll learn how to experiment and fail fast. You’ll find out how to quickly and rigorously assess your optimization ideas with open source tools, and how to share your results so that others can replicate your findings.
- Where: Spredfast — 200 West Cesar Chavez Street — 3rd Floor of the Silicon Labs building on Colorado
- How: Parking is on the street, or you can bus, bike, rollerblade, segway, jet ski, or walk yourself down there and just not worry about it. Just don't ride those electric scooters on the sidewalks.
- Drinks and pizza will be provided.
- Take a look at the Code of Conduct
Afterwards, the discussion carries on a few blocks away at Lavaca Street Bar where they have food, drinks, and 12 revolving taps.
