Adding a WebSocket service to an application is often misunderstood to be high performance by default, however there are many more considerations that must be made, both on the client and server, before the best performance can be achieved. Real-time technologies like SPDY, WebSocket, and soon HTTP 2.0 have their own sets of hurdles and anti-patterns to overcome and this talk will provide the checklist you need to fine tune your application’s real-time performance.
High Performance Websites, by Steve Souders, was first released in 2007. The follow-up – Even Faster Web Sites – was published in 2009. These books have served as web optimization canon for a generation of web developers. The problem is: it’s now 2015. Browsers, browser features, internet connectivity – they’ve all changed dramatically. A lot of the best practices from 2007 and 2009 no longer apply. And yet, many developers are still holding on to those practices – advocating for performance tweaks that are no longer relevant.
See you there!
