Topic:
Philip will be presenting his new open source project Boomerang.js. Why it was written, how to implement it, and what can be done with the data.

For a little background on Boomerang.js:
Boomerang is a piece of JavaScript that you add to your web pages, where it measures the performance of your website from your end user’s point of view. It has the ability to send this data back to your server for further analysis. With boomerang, you find out exactly how fast your users think your site is.< This is an excellent example of RUM (real user monitoring) that allows sites to effectively and actively measure real page performance for their actual users as they see it. Boomerang is open source and released under the BSD license. Agenda: (time is updated)

    We have a great deal of interest in Boomerang and are really keen to learn more. Will there be anything made available following this session?

  2. Yeah, I think Philip will share his slides and we’ll also try to have some form of recording going, but can’t promise unfortunately.
