In the summer of 2010, Microsoft and Google announced the formation of the Web Performance Working Group. Since then, we’ve been hard at work developing interoperable interfaces to measure web application performance. In this session, we’ll discuss the problems we’re solving, the challenges we’re facing, what we’ve done and where we’re going.
