Stoyan Stefanov was one of the creators of YSlow 2.0 and is now leading performance efforts at Facebook. In 2009 Stoyan started the Performance Calendar which he dubbed “the speed geek’s favorite time of the year”. For the 24 days leading up to Christmas, the Performance Calendar features an article a day from a leading performance expert. It’s like those calendars you used to get as a kid, but instead of getting candy, you get to unwrap awesome performance tips. As you would imagine, we’re big fans here at Torbit.
Yesterday our CEO, Josh Fraser, wrote an article for day 7 of the Performance Calendar titled Automating Website Performance. In it he talks about some of the challenges we’ve faced in the past with Torbit and some of the lessons we’ve learned about automating website performance optimizations. It’s definitely worth a read if you haven’t yet.
