Using tactics and tools to make your case
Web developers who propose performance enhancements often hear the same tune from management: performance is too much work, takes too long, costs too much, requires too much technical change, and pales in comparison to feature development. If you’re one of these developers, don’t give up. Help is out there.
This unique video collection from recent O’Reilly Velocity conferences provides you with a solid set of tactics and tools. They’ll help you convince the people you work with (or for) that performance is not only important, it’s also necessary. If you’re well-versed in the fundamentals of web performance, you’ll learn how to make a good case for speeding up your site.
