Today I attended the O’Reilly webinar, Hands-on Performance Testing and Analysis with WebPagetest. It was very informative. WebPagetest appears to be a very powerful tool.
O’Reilly maintains a list of previously recorded presentations, many of which I listened to live. Participation in the live presentation provides the opportunity to ask questions and be involved with the discussion by the presenter and other attendees.
