Making TfL Digital: Web, Open Data, and Beyond
What does it take to make the digital properties of Transport for London (TfL) as good as the best retail and service organisations? What journey are TfL taking to deliver world class digital services to millions of customers through the web, social, open data, and personalisation? Phil Young, Head of TfL Online, will share the background to the recent relaunch of TfL’s responsive website, built on the cloud, and how keeping customers at the centre will continue to guide the next generation of TfL’s digital services.View Slides

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of the HTTP Archive
The web is a fascinating place. Every day millions of websites around the world are constantly evolving and growing. Fortunately, great resources such as the HTTP Archive capture statistics from over 300,000 URLs, and provide us with useful insights into the world of web performance. In this talk, Robin Osborne and Dean Hume will highlight some of the most interesting performance insights they’ve gleaned from this data. They’ll highlight the techniques that the best websites are using, as well as those to avoid from the worst performing sites. Together, they'll uncover the good, the bad, and the ugly of the HTTP Archive and show one simple thing for each that will dramatically improve page load performance.
