#PerfMatters Conference is a single-track web performance conference in Redwood City, California with talks by internationally renowned performance developers, taking place March 27 & 28, 2017. Our focus is on front-end web performance.
#PerfMatters is the Web Performance Conference taking place in Redwood City, CA March 27 & 28, 2018. The venue is located half way between San Francisco and Silicon Valley, accessible via the San Francisco (SFO) and San Jose (SJC) airports (The venue is actually equidistant from SFO, SJC, and the Oakland International Airport, but that’s a little bit more of a hassle).
Our audience is made up primarily of engineering students, software engineers, web developers, performance engineers, technical managers and CTOs. Part of the program is curated, with most slots being filled by this Call for Presentations. We don’t want a sales pitch. We are looking for people passionate about performance who are able to speak effectively and from experience, and who understand our audience of developers. This is a single and a half track conference, meaning there is a single track, with a second much smaller room available for tutorials, un-conference talks, and anything else a speaker, attendee or sponsor might suggest. Being a single track conference, we are more flexible with talk lengths.
