Slides: High Performance Web Sites

The organizers of last month’s Kings of Code conference in Amsterdam asked me to talk about High Performance Web Sites. I discussed related material at last year’s @media conference, so for this new talk I was sure to use a bunch of new, updated, and expanded information. Luckily, the good people on Yahoo! Exceptional Performance team have been hard at work discovering new performance best practices.

The talk embedded below (or download: keynote, pdf, quicktime) covers several well-known optimization practices then quickly moves to review more recent findings and advancements. It concludes with a survey of tools for optimization and links for more information.

Enjoy, and please leave a comment with any thoughts you have.
