Measuring Web Performance

Sia Karamalegos

CEO and Lead Developer, Clio + Calliope Web Development

Are you losing revenue to performance? 53% of mobile site visits are abandoned if a page takes longer than 3 seconds to load. Pinterest reduced load times by 40% and saw a 15% increase in sign ups. Starbucks implemented a 2x faster time to interactive resulting in a 65% increase in rewards registrations. AliExpress reduced load by 36% and saw a 10.5% increase in orders.

Performance is important. Tooling can be hard. Do flame charts intimidate you? Come learn how to audit and fix common performance issues using Chrome DevTools, Lighthouse, PageSpeed Insights, and webpagetest.org.

Operations and Forecasting: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Rob Harr

Vice President, Sparkbox

“You won’t be in control of your business until you can accurately predict it.” One of my early mentors and business advisors must have said that a thousand times over our time together—and it’s true. Running a web studio is hard. But you can either run your business or your business can run you—and I have always hated having a boss.

During this workshop we will cover how we run our studio (from planning for projects, cash flow, hiring, and sales) that centers around forecasting. I’ll share a relatively simple weekly cadence you can implement that doesn’t lose sight of the people. We will dig into the details and discuss the important metrics to track and what is just noise. Before long you’ll actually be in charge of your business.
