All web developers need to know how to write web apps that give users great experience. In this presentation, Peter Kellner will talk first about the top 15 programming tips that you can use in your web site to make sure it's as fast as it can be. Following Peter’s general discussion of client side optimization techniques, Doris Chen will talk about JavaScript best practices in web client development.

Many client side improvements can be implemented in under 10 minute. You will come away knowing a handful of tools you can use to analyze your web site as well as know what to do to make your web site perform faster.
