In: Uncategorized

11 Sep 2009

Once again, Thanks Google for their tech talks.

Here is a video from Steve Souders named “Life’s Too Short - Write Fast Code”. This video talks about how to write efficient code and discuss speed optimizations techniques in Web programing.

Steve works at Google on web performance and open source initiatives. His book, High Performance Web Sites, explains his best practices for performance; it reached the top of the Amazon computer and Internet bestseller list. His follow-up book, Even Faster Web Sites, provides performance tips for today’s Web 2.0 applications. Steve is the creator of YSlow, the performance analysis extension to Firebug, with over one million downloads.
