Web Performance Automation. Joshua Bixby at NY Web Performance

New York Web Performance Group LogoOn October 13th, we have a special speaker: Joshua Bixby (@JoshuaBixby), President of Strangeloop Networks and author of Web Performance Today blog will talk about Web Performance Automation.

Abstract:
Depending on who you talk to, performance automation can range from the holy grail of performance tuning to a set of programming hacks that will bring down your website. In reality, it is neither of these things.

Joshua will talk about:

  • Different approaches to automation
  • Pros and cons of each
  • What kinds of performance best practices can or should be automated
  • What best practices are better left to hands-on developers
  • How “automatic” is performance automation, actually?
  • A survey of the automation market today
