Video Interviews Part 1 – Steve Souders, Google’s Performance Evangelist Talks Performance and Mobile & Yahoo!’s Gonzalo Cordero Discusses BayJax
During the jQuery conference in Mountain View, I got a chance to video interview a number of people. First up are Steve Souders, Google’s Performance Evangelist. Apart from Steve’s great comments on performance and mobile, what I truly appreciated was that I caught him just before sessions were about to start and without hesitation he took the time to speak with me. It’s a true testament to how great a guy Steve is and a lesson to all those that may be intimidated about approaching some of the stars of web development; just do it because they’re very approachable and cool!
Be sure to pick up Steve’s book, High Performance Web Sites: Essential Knowledge for Front-End Engineers and Even Faster Web Sites: Performance Best Practices for Web Developers, which have become THE books to read for improving your site’s performance.
