The Web performance industry is as old as the Web itself, and in that time, performance testing has gone through multiple paradigm shifts. Grant will explain the challenges of ensuring good performance on the Web with more complex, dynamic, personalized applications today — not to mention more congested wireless networks. Grant will explain how performance testing tools have evolved to measure different aspects of performance, and how to analyze and interpret raw performance data. Tools will be compared under real-world circumstances, the mechanics of today’s web will be explained, and FUD about web performance will be debunked.
