Free Online Presentation: Speedy Websites -- Front-End Optimization -- CFMeetup May 6th -- Noon ET

Our 12pm (US ET) talk on Thursday May 6 will be “Speedy Websites -- Front-End Optimization”, with Peter Farrell.

TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker)

Websites are not always slow due to poor server-side code or database queries. Learn how to identify potential issues using YSlow and Google Page Speed to implement best practice changes to drastically optimize the front-end performance of your web pages. Front-end optimization helps to keep your users engaged, improve general server performance and reduce hosting/bandwith costs. A little front-end optimization elbow grease can yield dramatic results.
