WPO Evangelist, Akamai


Michael Gooding is a web performance evangelist for Akamai Technologies, where he helps customers identify performance bottlenecks and solves often complex problems. With 10 years’ experience in the IT industry, Michael started professional life as a developer but moved into consultancy when performance issues started to become the norm and not the exception. Previously, he worked for the NCC Group (formerly Site Confidence), helping customers from all industries improve the performance of their sites. Michael is constantly researching latest optimizations trends and current techniques and sits on the organizing committee of the London Web Performance Group. Michael has found himself becoming more and more impatient as he gets older, which fuels his desire for a faster web experience.
