OReilly Events, High Performance Websites event with Steve Souders
Spend forty-five minutes with Steve Souders and you too can have Even Faster Web Sites. That's the plan anyway. O'Reilly Media presents a free webcast with the author of High Performance Web Sites and former Chief Performance Yahoo!, Steve Souders. The book High Performance Web Sites is based around the 14 most important rules that Souder discovered during his research and work on site optimization. If these rules are followed, he claims they can chip 25 to 50 percent off the response time when users request a page. Souder’s techniques have improved the functionality of such sites as Yahoo! Search and Yahoo! Front Page. Now at Google, Souders has been busy working on a new set of best practices to make web sites zoom, zoom fast. Benefiting from his extensive background in web performance, participants will learn about the Performance Golden Rule, review his performance best practices and watch how YSlow, the performance analysis extension to Firebug, analyzes the top web sites in the world. Joined by Andy Oram, author, blogger, and senior editor for O'Reilly Media, the webcast is sure to lend a hand in helping attendees harnessing the efficiency of their web sites. The webcast is scheduled for Thursday, April 24 at 10 a.m. PST. Register today!
