Building Fast Webapps, Fast

New York Web Performance Group LogoOur December session is coming up and the air is full of excitement! Everyone is waiting for presents and some of them were delivered to us directly (see below)!

On December 13thMarcus Westin (@marcuswestin) from Meebo is going to talk about learnings from speeding up Meebo bar.

Description:

If the Meebo Bar is slow, hundreds of unforgiving partner websites and hundred of millions of users are affected. However, time spent on optimization is time away from feature development, and if we fall short on feature parity we lose market share to our competitors. As a result, it is crucial that we make good decisions about what and when to optimize. “Building Fast Webapps, Fast” tells stories of good and bad decisions we have made when faced with performance challenges for the Meebo Bar. Interlaced with high level optimization guiding principles, it is intended to be a fast-paced and fun story of how to take ownership of your web product’s performance.

Marcus has been working with Meebo since 2008. He’s all about the web and enjoys his javascript in the raw, sans library. Before Marcus came to Meebo he spent his spare time learning the ins and outs of frontend technology while studying for a BS in computer science at the University of Chicago. Catch him on a good day and he won’t stop talking about the open web.

This is going to be a great session! Meebo bar is a perfect example of a 3-rd party application on your site that is done good and doesn’t slow you.
If you develop widgets or other 3rd-party tools that integrate using JavaScript, come learn how to avoid SLO-JS and not hurt others!
