Making your Web Sites faster – Tutorial at QCon London

In the last year I did several Web Performance Optimization Workshops. Mainly with customers or members of our AJAX Community. We typically spent a couple of hours to look at their current web projects, analyzed potential performance problems and discussed how to speed these pages up. The outcome was both a better understanding of the underlying technologies, how to best use them as well as an action item list to speed up their web sites they are working on.

I submitted this workshop as a tutorial for QCon 2011 and got accepted. Now it is time for people to take advantage of this opportunity.
