Modern Web Apps should be focused, rich, and gorgeous, but they also need to be FAST. After all, being rich and beautiful isn't always enough!  With web apps, faster is always better; nobody will ever complain that your site is too fast!  HTML5 provides a lot of cool new features, but if you're not careful, you could end up with a slow app and that's not cool. 

In this fast-paced, practical session, HTML5 expert @peterlubbers (author of Pro HTML5 Programming and founder of the San Francisco HTML5 User Groupwill show you how to:

  • Take advantage of HTML5 Web Workers to significantly improve the responsiveness of your pages
  • Use HTML5 AppCache to preload resources
  • Install and use free performance analysis tools like YSlow, Page Speed, and Speed tracer to instantly see where you can improve your web pages
  • Optimize your web apps' JavaScript, CSS, Images and HTML
  • Minify your JavaScript, CSS, and HTML using free tools like Uglify and Closure compiler
  • Use the build tools that are part of the awesome (free) HTML5 Boilerplate templates
  • Use Image Data URIs to dramatically cut down the number of image requests you make
  • Configure your web server to speed up your web apps' performance
  • "Minify" how much you spend on the Pro HTML5 Programming e-book (all attendees will receive a 50% discount coupon)
