Performance is ultimately about respect. Is your Website fast? What do fast and slow really mean? Can a site ever be too fast? User's perceptions of your site matter as much as quantitative measurements, and designing your site to seem fast is crucial.

Daniel Austin, CEO & Founder of Grin Technologies Inc., today announced his keynote presentation at the HTML5DevConf, on October 20, 2014 in room E-132. Austin will present, “Performance: How Fast is Fast Enough?” from 9:00 – 9:50 AM at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. In addition, Austin will also instruct a web performance boot camp on October 23rd from 9-4.

“Performance is ultimately about respect, “ Austin said. “Is your Website fast? What do 'fast' and 'slow' really mean? Can a site ever be too fast? How can you tell? User's perceptions of your site matter as much as quantitative measurements, and designing your site to seem fast is crucial.”
