Architect, Akamai

Website | @yoavweiss

Yoav Weiss is a principal architect at Akamai, where he focuses on making the web platform faster by adding performance-related features to browsers as well as to Akamai’s CDN. Yoav has been working on mobile web performance for longer than he cares to admit. He takes image bloat on the web as a personal insult, which is why he joined the Responsive Image community group and implemented the various responsive images features in Blink and WebKit. When he’s not writing code, he’s probably slapping his bass, mowing the lawn in the French countryside, or playing board games with his family.

Yoav Weiss explores how to gain back control of your site, discussing mitigation tactics as well as a long-term plan to restore sanity. Read more.
