By now, we’ve all internalized Steve Souders’ rules for optimizing web performance, but the question is: do you need to spend 6 months and raise an army of top developers to make your sites fast by default? In this workshop, we’ll subject an unsuspecting website to real-time optimization, following Google and Yahoo’s rules for high-performance websites.
Last year at Velocity, Hooman Beheshti presented the findings from phase one of Strangeloop’s long-term research into the relationship between web performance and business benefits. The results were also published in Watching Websites. Since then, we’ve received a barrage of questions from the web performance community, which fueled phase two of our study.
Mobile web users are demanding. More than half say that they expect sites to download as quickly on their mobile devices as they do on their home computers. Three out of 5 say that poor performance will make them less likely to return to the site. And 40% say they'd likely visit a competitor's site next.
