A talk by Steve Souders

April 24, 2010 7:00 AM

Embedding third party content (ads, widgets, and analytics) into your web page presents a performance challenge. More DNS lookups, HTTP requests, JavaScript, DOM elements, etc. all lead to a slower page. To make matters worse, these third parties have goals that are often in conflict with your page's speediness. These are the issues motivating Steve's new work on P3PC - Performance of 3rd Party Content. He'll survey the landscape by analyzing code examples for popular ads, widgets, and analytics, both good and (more frequently than not) bad. Steve will provide suggestions for what you can do to mitigate the current impact of 3rd party code snippets and will discuss future HTML5 features that improve the situation.
