Performance Draws a Crowd in Beijing

Last week Tenni Theurer, manager of Yahoo!'s Exceptional Performance group and my main performance co-hort, returned from her appearance at the CSDN-Dr.Dobbs Software Developer 2.0 Conference in Beijing, China. This was a big conference, perhaps the biggest software conference ever in China. I was psyched when Tenni told me her talk drew a crowd and was one of the best talks of the conference! CSDN's SD2.0 web site says, "Based on our SD conference survey result, Tenni Theurer’s session ranked as one of the top 3 sessions and was also selected by our editors as the most popular speaker." It's great to see interest in fast web pages has spread worldwide. Upcoming performance performances include the WebGuild Web 2.0 Conference in Santa Clara on January 29 and Velocity, the web performance conference from O'Reilly on June 23-24 near San Francisco.
