Yoav Weiss explores where web standards come from, the role of the Web Performance Working Group, new and forthcoming performance-related APIs, and how to push that cool idea you have for a new web API. Along the way, Yoav describes how new APIs get created and shipped and the ways you can get involved, provide feedback on current work, or start working on your own proposals. Influencing the future of web performance and the Web in general has never been easier.

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.
