Prerequisite knowledge

Attendees should be interested in improving the user experience and conversion rates of their website and mobile apps.


When most people think of performance monitoring tools, they think of things like time series charts, page load times, DNS resolution times, and backend service response times. Buddy Brewer explores alternative ways of visualizing performance data and explains how changing your perspective can sometimes lead you to surprising discoveries.

This keynote is sponsored by SOASTA.
