Since I published the "101 ways to speed up your Magento e-commerce website" lots of people commented on

it and send me their thanks and additional tips & tricks to put in the list which was really great. Knowing that the subject appealed to many people I thought it would be nice to take a look at it from a (non technical) perspective: that of the person that talks to potential clients about Magento and their questions about it's performance. Last week Magento.com started to accept guest bloggers to post on their blog. A great opportunity to share knowledge and thought about the subject so I grabbed my blog idea, started writing and I now have the honor to be the first with the post "Magento Performance: Myth vs. Reality". So go check it out! If you like it or have additional thoughts, leave a comment! Thanks go out to all that helped me with ideas and proofreading: Roy Rubin, Yoav Kutner, Mosses Akizan, Rhonda Rondeau, Wim de Nocker and Roman Zenner.

This is a bonus episode with Emily Robinson (Senior Data Scientist at Warby Parker) en Lukas Vermeer (Director of Experimentation at Booking.com). In her earlier session that day, Emily said that real progress starts when you put your work online for others to see and comment on which in this case was about Github. Someone from the audience wondered how that works out in larger companies where a manager or even a legal department might not be overly joyous about that to say the least so I asked Emily about her thoughts on that.
