Velocity: Optimizing Web Performance and Scalability

Velocity 2008 has concluded. Check out the highlights from the conference:

Check out the list of upcoming Velocity events around the world.

Velocity is the new O'Reilly conference for people building at Internet scale, happening on June 23-24, 2008 at the San Francisco Airport Marriott in Burlingame, California.

Once you build the cloud, it's all about network operations.
--Andy Kessler in the Wall Street Journal

Web companies, big and small, face many of the same challenges: sites must be faster, infrastructure needs to scale, and everything must be available to customers at all times, no matter what. Velocity is the place to obtain the crucial skills and knowledge to build successful web sites that are fast, scalable, resilient, and highly available.

Velocity is one of the few opportunities to learn from peers, exchange ideas with experts, and share best practices and lessons learned.

Velocity is designed to deliver the best information on building and operating web sites that are fast, reliable, and always up. We're bringing together people from around the world who are doing the best performance work, to improve the experience of web users worldwide. Pages will be faster. Sites will have higher up-time. Companies will achieve more with less. The next cool startup will be able to more quickly scale to serve a larger audience, globally. Velocity is the key for crossing over from cool Web 2.0 features to sustainable web sites.
