Thursday, 14 September

  • Monthly Speaker Series: Measuring the Subjective: The Performance Dashboard with Estelle Weyl
  • Location: Mozilla Mountain View + Air Mozilla
  • Time: 10am PT / 1pm ET / 5pm UT
  • Topic: Measuring the Subjective: The Performance Dashboard

Firefox 57: a new look, a new engine. And fast. Because performance is critical.

But what does that mean? While performance is often seen a table stakes for software - it must be the best, and must continually improve - amazingly, no objective universal metric for performance exists.

Drawing on results from a speed perception study and years of teaching & following web development best practices, Estelle Weyl will help us craft a useful definition of performance, unpack the difference between Speed Performance and Perceived Speed Performance, and show how we can leverage available performance tools to improve the user experience, ultimately getting the best ROI of our performance efforts.

Speakers

The limit is 3 minutes per topic. It's like a lightning talk, but don't feel that you have to have slides in order to make a presentation. If you plan on showing a video, you need to contact the Air Mozilla team before the day of the meeting or you will be deferred to the next week. The meeting is streamed in a 4:3 format in order to allow for split screen. If your slides are 16:9 "widescreen" format, please indicate in the "Sharing" column below.
