Velocity 2010 BoF Sessions
What is a BoF?
Birds of a Feather (BoF) sessions provide face to face exposure to those interested in the same projects and concepts. BoFs can be organized for individual projects or broader topics (best practices, open data, standards). BoFs are entirely up to you. We post your topic online and onsite and provide the space and time. You provide the engaging topic.
BoFs at Velocity will happen on the following evenings:
- Tuesday, June 22
- Wednesday, June 23
How do I lead a BoF?
Online BoF submissions are closed. Check the BoF schedule board onsite near registration and sign up in any open slot.
How do I participate in a BoF?
If you would like to join the discussion in one of the BoFs, there is no need to formally sign up. You can check the list of pre-scheduled BoFs online or check the BoF schedule board onsite near registration for topics and locations.
Moderating a BoF is open to attendees and speakers at the event. You must be registered to conduct a BoF. The moderator is not a speaker in the main program.

IE is still a major player in the browser market with its very own performance problems.

Web Performance Tooling is continuously evolving. However instead of one single you need to use a big tool set where each tool does similar things but not quite the same. Eventually you find yourself using 10 different tools and having loads of incompatible data. This session will discuss real-world needs and tools support today and how it should be in the future.
