Measuring Poor Website Performance

So you have written a great new site but how does it perform in real life? Sure it runs fine with one person testing it but will it get sick when thousand of users come to it? And if certain pages are slow what is it costing your customer and end users in terms of lost sales and lost time? Don will show us how to measure the business impact of poor website performance, including calculating the cost of poor performance in terms of lost revenue and productivity. He will also walk through a customer a case study for an e-commerce client and show how they used tools and his testing methodology to help save them money and increase website sales.
