There have been a lot of user-facing features that have been added to WebPagetest over the last year and this talk will help you make sure you get the most benefit from the tool. The presentation will also cover information on running your own private instances of WebPagetest and use of the API for automation or integration with existing systems. You will also be introduced to some of the more advanced capabilities from browser scripting/automation to selective content blocking and learn how to effectively use them when analyzing a live site.

Pat is the only speaker doing a workshop, plenary talk, and track presentation. The Velocity Program Committee agreed that was appropriate because WebPagetest is the most important performance tool to come out in the last few years. In this talk Pat will focus on recent user features and future directions.
