Fall is a pretty exciting time of year for IT. While the rest of the world seems to be craving all things pumpkin, we web performance pros not only have the holiday shopping season preoccupying our minds, but the O’Reilly Velocity Conference in New York City to look forward to as well.

Next week, all of the bigwigs of web perf will be under one roof to share their latest tips, research, and product innovations. And even though the entire event promises to be memorable, we’ve picked out some of the can’t-miss sessions currently on the lineup to help you get the most out of this year’s conference.
