Speedy Websites -- Free Online Presentation Recording on YSlow Available

Special thanks to Charlie Arehart and the Online ColdFusion Meetup for letting me present on Speedy Websites -- Using YSlow to Analyze Front-End Performance.  Here's an overview of what we talked about:

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.

The presentation was recorded.  I apologize for the poor video quality.  Adobe Connect does not support Linux screen sharing so I used remote desktop sharing to a Windows machine using TightVNC.

    I notified Charlie about the link so he can take care of it. It's the one listed on CFMeetup's Recordings List.
