LiveBlog: Next Web Challenges: It's Still All About UX
Velocity 2009, the conference about performance, is very high-performance about getting people on and off stage (and high density around content)
Umang Gupta, Vik Chaudhary (Keynote)
(omitted: Keynote history, 15 years of continuous improvement, etc.)
Debuting Transaction Perpective 9.0 (TXP9)
- Embeds real IE browser for monitoring
- Adds “screen sensing” technology
- Esp. useful for “next web” apps: flash, video, voice, SMS/mobile—composit transactions or flows
(demo: reservations site for The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, very flash-integrated with lots of client-side action. “Challenge of screen sensing what’s going on on the screen is non-trivial”. Also http://espn.go.com/video/ and Mini-Cooper flash site)
Using KITE platform/desktop environment to record what you’re doing. You click around, type, etc. and it records a script.
(This is somewhat like what they do at [DeviceAnywhere http://deviceanywhere.com/] for mobile device testing. They don’t focus on UX or perf; they’re more on QA testing side)
Script runs and collects UX and Network times. UX time is net time + client-side execution + rendering. Also shows augmented waterfall inclusive of client-side computation, etc.
