    DNS Outage Was Doomsday for the Internet Posted on October 23rd, 2016 by Mehdi Daoudi

    What was supposed to be a quiet Friday suddenly turned into a real “Black Friday” for us (as well as most of the Internet) when Dyn suffered a major DDOS attack.

    Measuring Perceived Performance Posted on October 21st, 2016 by Ryan Pellette

    Back in 2012 Steve Souders published a blog post with the intention of helping to move away from using window.onload() as an indicator of website speed.

    The Network’s Impact on Digital Experience Posted on October 6th, 2016 by Dawn Parzych

    There’s a lot of talk these days about digital transformation and the digital experience, what seems to be missing from some of these discussions is the impact the network has on digital experience.

    Velocity NYC Report: Is the Mobile Web Ready for a Comeback? Posted on September 28th, 2016 by Dennis Callaghan

    Last week’s Velocity New York conference by O’Reilly Media was held on the heels of new research published from DoubleClick by Google that concluded that mobile page load times of more than three seconds result in a 53% site abandonment rate.
