Despite the fact that real-user monitoring (RUM) is a white-hot topic these days, my feeling has been that only about 20% of major ecommerce sites have adopted RUM tools. So I decided to back up my talk with a little ad hoc research.
At Strangeloop, we talk a lot about the business value of web performance, but we're just as interested in the…
Can you predict the outcome of the US election based on the performance of the candidates’ sites? Maybe, maybe not. But I’m going to try anyway. 😉
I get a thrill at the thought of billions of RUM beacons gathering tonnes of data for me to slice and dice. But I also like to get a tactile sense of how a site looks and feels. Today I want to talk about a low-tech way to measure performance, either to validate your high-tech results or to give you an introduction to performance. I call it (drumroll please) …
.Net magazine invited me to write about our recent study into mobile load times, and you know me — I never turn down a chance to talk about mobile performance. 🙂
When I was at WebPerfDays last week, I was walking past the ubiquitous board of post-it notes and started thinking about the fact that at every conference, so many of those questions and ideas go undiscussed. So I decided to snap each one and have made my best attempt at answering every question.
For this keynote, I decided to do something I’ve never done before — corral all the performance-related findings we’ve made over the past few years here at Strangeloop. It was a really interesting exercise for me. We tend to remember the big sexy studies, and it’s easy to forget about all the incremental learning we do on a daily basis, not to mention the epiphanies that can surprise us in the course of our regular work.
I’m a bit late posting these, but here’s the deck from my session at Velocity EU, where I talked about the methodology and findings in Strangeloop’s new mobile performance study.
This past summer, we here at Strangeloop took on the challenge of testing real-world mobile performance over 3G and LTE networks. Here’s how we did it and some of the surprising things we learned.
Slides from my O’Reilly webcast, where I talked about the past and future evolution of the mobile market and the ongoing role of performance optimization.
