The 90-Minute Mobile Optimization Life Cycle [SLIDES]

The 'cycle' continues.

Two years ago at Velocity 2010, Strangeloop VP of Technology Hooman Beheshti impressed attendees with a session entitled The 90-Minute Optimization Life Cycle.

During the session, Hooman took an average website and subjected it to automated optimization, allowing audience members to watch in real-time as the acceleration benefits took effect. Attendees raved about the session, rating it as one of the top 10 presentations of the conference.

At this year's Velocity, Hooman was back once again, this time to demonstrate – in real-time – the impact of advanced mobile optimization techniques on an average website.

Attendees witnessed the mobile optimization life cycle from ‘meiosis’ through full bloom, including:

  • The initial "Before" shot: Choosing a test site and benchmarking its current performance, focusing on load time, start render time and round trips.
  • Repeating core best practices including Keep-Alive, Compression, Far Future Expiry, and Use a CDN.
  • Applying a set of automated mobile-specific FEO techniques.
  • The "Aftermath": Analyzing results using different browsers.

For those who were unable to attend the session, the full presentation is available in the slideshow below.

If you want to pick Hooman's brain about this session, or about performance in general, look for him around the convention centre. He's also keeping an official "Office Hour" on Wednesday at 2:30pm in the Velocity Office Hours space. Drop by and say hi!
