While many developers use proven best practices to ensure that the performance of web applications is acceptable, further tuning and tweaking are useless without real measurement data. A wide range of analysis tools are available for major desktop browsers, however the situation is different on the mobile space as there is very little instrumentation possibilities. This talk will highlight several techniques which can be utilized to find out what the mobile browser is doing (at almost real-time), covering network proxy server, remote JavaScript debugger, event automator, and few other tricks.

I’ve met with Ariya and other Sencha folks – they definitely know the mobile space. In addition, they’ve had to focus on multiple mobile platforms. I’m excited to hear some practical takeaways from Ariya on tools and techniques he’s used to gauge performance on mobile.
