Mobitest (Guy Podjarny) – Mobile browsing is on the rise, and many website owners would tell you mobile web performance is critical to their success. However, most of those owners would not know how their own sites perform on mobile, largely due to an extreme lack of mobile performance tools. In this workshop we’ll show how to fix that problem using Blaze Mobitest, a free hosted mobile performance measurements. We’ll show how to quickly and easily measure your site’s performance on a variety of mobile devices, such as iPhone and Android. We’ll also review the full feature set, ranging from simple measurements to detailed HAR files, and answer any questions on the underlying technology and more.
ShowSlow (Sergey Chernyshev) – Next we’ll set up ShowSlow for metric tracking and go over various options for configuring custom instance to fit your needs. We’ll look at configuration of testing tools like YSlow, Page Speed and dynaTrace AJAX to send data to your instance of Show Slow and see how it can be used for documenting and helping with decision making during day to day web performance optimization efforts.
