  • Performance: How Fast is Fast Enough?
  • Time: TBD | Room: E-132
Performance is ultimately about respect. Is your Website fast? What do 'fast' and 'slow' really mean? Can a site ever be too fast? How can you tell? User's perceptions of your site matter as much as quantitative measurements, and designing your site to seem fast is crucial. This talk explores the psychology of the user experience, especially on Mobile devices, and suggests some real-world solutions to optimizing your site in ways that make sense to the people that matter - the end users.
