Software development and deployment contexts have changed considerably over the last decade with Agile approaches. Performance testing has had difficulty keeping up with modern testing principles and software development and continuous deployment processes.

Static websites are hardly new, going all the way back to the beginning of the web. So, why the sudden explosion in interest? What’s up? Why now?

Thought you guys might be interested in this. New WP cache enabler plugin which supports WebP. In this case study WebP resulted in a 77% decrease in page size. Anyone else experiment much with JPG/PNG vs WebP? Would love to hear your thoughts. http://bit.ly/1Wk2adq
The WordPress cache enabler is a lightweight caching plugin from KeyCDN. It offers fast disk caching, minification, a focus on HTTP/2 and WebP support!

I think in the long term WebP might be beneficial, but presently if you want to squeeze out every possible byte, you can still achieve better results thanks to a large library PNG optimization tools as documented on http://en.css-ig.net/

For example, I was able to compress your sample "black helmet with orange stripe" down to 501739 bytes, even smaller than WebP, and that's not using the most time consuming process.

As similar tools get developed for WebP, it will likely become the clearer winner.

PHP performance super-boost with generators!

Not familiar with generators? Fear not! +Christopher Pitt re-introduces generators on a practical demo by reading and writing large CSV files while using very little memory. Take your PHP apps to the next level!

Why Smart Organizations Are Rethinking Their Application Performance Strategy in 2016.
2016 is well underway. By now, most teams have done autopsies on last year's performance issues. Some have even gone a step further and made necessary improvements to their web and mobile applications. The good news? The odds of your organization encountering the exact same problem again are low ...

Exciting to see more providers integrate with Let's Encrypt! Will be very interesting to see a year from now how this affects other CAs. For now Let's Encrypt only provides domain validation certs, so larger enterprise companies will still likely keep paying for Organization/Extended certs. But for the rest of us, you can't beat free! A great step in the right direction for a more secure and faster web. Watch HTTP/2 and TLS adoption rate skyrocket.
KeyCDN has added an integration with Let's Encrypt which now allows all customers access to free SSL certificates which can be used with custom Zone URLs.

Der im Mai 2015 veröffentlichte Webstandard HTTP/2 bewirkt, dass Webseiten schneller angezeigt werden. Die Kompatibilität von HTTP/2 ist in fast allen aktuellen Webbrowsern gegeben, wer dies jedoch einsetzen will muss zwangsläufig ein SSL-Zertifikat einsetzen, so dass die Webseite verschlüsselt übertragen wird.

This is not specifically "web performance" related..
Nontheless, I always rely on https://tools.percona.com/wizard to generate a sane yet optimized Percona/Maria/MySQL config. You can sign up for free account there(or use bugmenot.) That wizard asks a couple of relevant questions to generate proper config for your needs.

What are your thoughts on #HTTP2 ? Should people be considering moving even blogs to HTTPS for performance benefits?  With SPDY it was kind of a toss up, but speed gains from HTTP/2 now almost make it a no brainer. http://bit.ly/1NlYnov
KeyCDN now fully supports HTTP/2. We thought we would share with you some HTTP/2 statistics so you can see the distribution across our global network.

+Roberto Peon Oops, ya you are correct on the multiplexing. Need more caffeine... Ya I am curious (even more now lol) and would love to see a full blown case study as well on SPDY vs HTTP/2. I'm sure some will start popping up soon :)
