Aladdin has spoken at the previous two Velocitys, and his sessions always get high marks. He’s passionate about web performance – and that comes through when you hear him speak. This peak into the network characteristics observed by Hotmail is going to be valuable. Hats off to Aladdin and the folks at Microsoft for sharing.
