Abstract

To help the folks building modern web applications, on understanding some of the best practices for building web applications that scream!

Outline

Modern Web Applications are becoming more and more heavier on the client side. With the added interactivity, applications today are seeing a lot more JS heavy stuff.

I'll be talking about the basics of performance optimizations, which most people already know about, i.e. minimize requests, combine JS/CSS, use CDNs etc, while covering in more detail stuff Async JS Loading, HTTP Chunking, Google SPDY and such.

Requirements

An Open Mind on how important Performance really is! :D
