The performance evolution that took place on the desktop (tools and research resulting in best practices) is starting in mobile. Right now we’re at step 1: gaining visibility into what’s happening in the mobile browser. Without this visibility, mobile web developers are flying blind.
Tackling mobile performance is a bigger challenge than desktop because of more operating systems, greater browser disparity, and limitations of the device (CPU, memory, disk space, and screen size). In this session Steve Souders shows how to analyze mobile performance across all the popular devices. He demonstrates analysis tools, services for accessing devices remotely, and quirks he’s discovered that show mobile performance is full of surprises.
Steve Souders works at Google on web performance and open source initiatives. His books High Performance Web Sites and Even Faster Web Sites explain his best practices for performance along with the research and real-world results behind them. Steve is the creator of YSlow, Cuzillion, and SpriteMe. He is co-chair of Velocity and co-founder of the Firebug Working Group. He taught CS193H High Performance Web Sites at Stanford, and frequently speaks at conferences including OSCON, The Ajax Experience, SXSW, and Web 2.0 Expo.
