Techniques For Improving Website Performance

Annotated below is a presentation from Nik Molnar, co-founder of the open source debugging and diagnostics tool Glimpse, who demonstrates several different strategies for improving the performance of your web application. This is easily one of the most useful conference presentations I have ever seen and I wanted to share it with everyone. If were curious about how to do any of the following tasks, this presentation will cover those for you.

 

ThatConference 2014

For the past three years, a group of very smart and very generous people, have hosted a wonderful summer camp themed conference in Wisconsin titled ‘That Conference’.   It’s hosted at a giant indoor/outdoor waterpark and convention center, Kalahari Resorts.  The number and quality of the sessions is impressive, and may shock you a bit when you consider the entire ticket cost is currently under $400.

 

The New Microsoft

Let’s put aside all the discussion of re-branding Microsoft to make them more hip and talk about the developer platform.  I may be stating the obvious here on what many have already witnessed at Microsoft over the past few years, but there appears to be a paradigm shift in the way the company is operating from a development standpoint.

Today was the first day of a new developer conference in the midwest, thatConference.  It is taking place in the Wisconsin Dells @ Kalahari Resort (a very family friendly place).  Clark Sell, and Scott Seely have been the primary driving forces behind the conference, but it certainly has been a collective effort of many people.
