Event description

Description

Is your website loading too slow?

The load time of your website not only affects your search engine rankings, but is also correlated to the conversion rate on your site; Kyle Rush from the 2011 Obama for America campaign site showed a 3 second page load speed improvement increased on-site donations by 14% (resulting in over $34 million in donations). With websites now being accessed from an ever more diverse range of devices and platforms, it’s vital your online presence remains fast across the board.

This talk will cover the realities of modern web acceleration and the best practice you can use to speed up your online presence; using caching, modern web protocols and on-site optimisations.
