This November 12, I will be holding a technical session on Improving Website Performance that was heavily inspired by Steve Souders' book, High Performance Web Sites.

What makes me excited about this session is that I'm in the process of finetuning my site (and of clients) and look forward in sharing what I learned during this session.
YSlow analyzes web pages and tells you why they're slow. Listen to Steve Souders to know more about it.
