Two years ago, Velocity attendees watched as an unsuspecting website was subjected to automated optimization before their eyes in the workshop The 90-Minute Optimization Life Cycle (rated one of the top 10 sessions of Velocity 2010). This year, Hooman Beheshti is back, this time to demonstrate – in real time – the impact of advanced mobile optimization techniques on another unsuspecting website.

Over the course of the workshop, we’ll witness the mobile optimization life cycle, from start to finish:

  • Taking the “Before” shot: Choosing a guinea pig site and benchmarking its current performance, focusing on load time, start render time and round trips.
  • Iterating through core best practices, including: Keep-Alive, Compression, Far Future Expiry, and Use a CDN.
  • Applying a set of advanced, automated, mobile-specific FEO techniques.
  • Taking the “After” shot: Analyzing results using different browsers.
