Source Up! 2017 is cancelled

We've had to make the unexpected and tough decision to cancel Source Up! 2017. I'm sorry that it's not going to work out this year. Thanks to all the speakers and attendees for their support and understanding.

We hope to bring back Source Up! in the future, and that you can join us when we do. We'll post updates on @SourceUp.

Paul's Talk

The Illusion of Speed

14:30 on Monday, 18 September

If you could take a 50% hit in real world performance and get a site that feels 50% faster, would you? Nobody cares how fast your site is. All your users care about is how fast your site feels.

Going beyond the perceived perf theory, Paul is bringing a bunch of demos of things that employ clever tricks and psychology to turn things that should be slow into things that feel incredibly fast.
