We had a blast meeting and talking DevOps and web performance with everybody at the Velocity + Fluent conference in San Jose earlier this month. In case you missed any of the Akamai Developer sessions, you can find recordings below. We had four popular speakers that you’ll want to be sure to check out:

Velocity keynote: “The Secret to Building and Delivering Amazing Apps at Scale”Javier Garza, developer evangelist, Akamai Technologies[video] [slides]  

Fluent session: “Measuring What Matters”Cliff Crocker, product line director, Akamai Technologies[slides]

Fluent session: “When Third Parties Stop Being Polite…and Start Getting Real”Nic Jansma, senior principal lead software engineer, Akamai TechnologiesCharles Vazac, principal software engineer, Akamai Technologies[slides]

The expo hall at the at Velocity was absolutely electric. At the center of it all, we were spinning tunes from our favorite playlists, making custom t-shirts, and delivering dazzling talks and demos at our equally dazzling booth (see dazzle proof in photo below). Plus, among our many friendly and interesting booth visitors there were two lucky winners of a brand-new DJI Spark mini-drone, courtesy of the Akamai Developer Program.
