After a hectic weekend (and an even more hectic start of the week, thus the delay), here’s the slides, video and some thoughts for the presentation I did with Lennart Schoors at last saturday’s BarCamp Gent.

Lots of thoughts were crammed in this 20 minute session, so I hope we didn’t overwhelm too much … Credit where credit is due, so a shout out to Lennart, to the Yahoo Performance team and Steve Souders for stressing the importance of frontend performance, to Firebug & YSlow! for being indispensible tools, and to our colleagues for making Netlog an inspiring to work for.
