Speaker: RJ Zaworski

RJ Zaworski is a software developer working to build an open, inclusive, continuously improving internet. He will be speaking on keeping web-based applications running fast outside the development environment, which means coming to terms with a raft of external forces. Poor connections, browser quirks, and sheer physical distance are all conspiring against the end user experience.

From script blocking to browser caching, this workshop will develop a framework for recognizing common frontend performance issues and introduce tools for addressing them. Make it work; make it right; make it fast.
