The in-person Velocity conference is slated for June 22-24, 2010 in Santa Clara. But you don’t have to wait until then to whet your performance and operations appetite. On December 8 (less than 4 weeks from now!) the first Velocity Online Conference will be held.

Sessions include:

  • How Web Speed Affects Online Business KPIs – Hooman Behesti (Strangeloop)
  • Faster Load Times Through Deferred JavaScript Evaluation – Charles Jolley (Apple)
  • Load Balancing & Reverse Proxies with Varnish & More – Artur Bergman (Wikia)
  • CouchDB from 10,000 Feet – Chris Anderson (
  • A Roundtable Panel of Some of Your Favorite Velocity Web Ops Ninjas

The beauty of this format is anyone, anywhere can join in – all you need is a computer and an Internet connection. I’m especially excited to see the turnout from the international community (having just returned from Sweden, Amsterdam, and Berlin). The cost is $149. Use the velfall09pcd discount code for a 25% discount when you register.

I hope to hear you online December 8th. Here’s to a faster Internet!

  1. How long is the discount code valid for? Is there a time all of the descriptions for talks will be complete by?

  2. Hi Chris,

    The discount code has no expiration date, so you’re free to use up to the event date.

    Re: the TBD items in the agenda, we anticipate updating those two slots in the next few days. We’re just gathering info from the speakers – session descriptions, bios, etc.
