Velocity Conference: June 23-24, Burlingame, Ca.

At the first Velocity Conference, you can learn best practices for optimizing your most-visited web pages, specifically the performance of Ajax, CSS, JavaScript, Flash, and images. Even sites that had already been highly optimized can benefit - or so says organizer O'Reilly Media.

Two practical, highly technical tracks cover the key aspects of Web Performance and Operations in depth and the speaker roster has many of the better speakers from the recent Web 2.0 conference.
This new conference deals entirely with web-scale issues for gear heads.
