Web Performance Interview: Stuart Colville and Ed Eliot of Yahoo!

Category: Performance, Yahoo!

Yahoo! has got a parallel universe going on between the US and the UK.

Last week we interviewed Steve Souders, Chief Performance Yahoo!, on the update to YSlow. Steve has a book out called High Performance Web Sites.

Meanwhile, in the UK, Stuart Colville and Ed Eliot also of Yahoo! have a book in the works called High Performance Web Site Techniques.

Haha, whoops. Should read the start of the post first.

For the love of God, NEVER embed quicktime movie on Ajaxian – what a disaster.

And since I’m posting – you star ranking system should round UP at .5 so that 4.6 turns to 5 stars. Otherwise you will NEVER get 5 stars on any article even thought it a has 99.999% approval rating.
