Recently we had some mid sized companies who made their website more attractive to the public. But with the success their website became not usable anymore. The page loading times increased tremendously and so they started loosing regular visitors.
What components of a website make your site slow?
How do you find bottlenecks?
Shall we throw more hardware at the problem?
A small step by step guide how to evaluate severity.
This is about possible solutions and compromises between performance and features.

I would like to present on the topic of Growth-Driven Design and how it can help both marketers and agencies alike change the way they do business and deliver websites. The traditional web design process is broken. Your website is the centerpiece of all your marketing activities and is your “best salesperson,” yet the way we traditionally approach website design has a great deal of systemic risk and wasted opportunity.
There's a smarter way to think about web design and that's by implementing Growth-Driven Design.
Growth-Driven Design focuses on three main principles:
1) Minimise the risk of website redesigns
2) Continuously learn and improve
3) GDD Learning informs marketing and sales
I believe my presentation would be beneficial to marketers and agencies, helping them not only with their website redesigns but also helping agencies move from a project based business model where cash flow can be a problem to a retainer based business model allowing their cash flow to be much more predictable, this also allows them to grow their business.

Yes, you know, you should have written that test! But what If you already do writing tests, but you don't see the result of your actions. Tests run slow, they are fragile, hard to read and maintain. Fixing a test is harder than disabling it.
Don't blame yourself. It's not about you, it's about some points you should have taken into account while your testing codebase grew. In this talk I will tell you about
* What are best practices for tests (with code samples)
* Do we need acceptance tests and what framework to choose: Behat, Codeception, Selenium, PhantomJS
* How data should be managed? (Dumps, Fixtures, FactoryMuffin)
* How to test APIs (Codeception, php-vcr)
* Creating test environments with Docker containers
* Setting up parallel testing with Docker

Marketing and UX are two of a kind. While their overall roles may be different, they also complement each other and share many of the same processes. When they work together towards a single goal it can create a powerful combination. Internet Marketing is used to drive website traffic, UX is used to engage those users when they arrive, and both teams want those people to come back again. We’ll talk about ways Marketing and UX can come together to increase audience engagement and user relationships.

The EU Place of Supply reform – better known as VATMOSS – was an e-commerce regulation intended to combat the tax games played by multinational corporations worth billions. In practice, the law has had a devastating effect on everyone but multinationals. For small digital businesses just trying to get through the month, compliance requirements are so overwhelming and disproportionate that many have shut down altogether. Members of the web profession have been hit particularly hard both as service providers and as technical implementers.
In this talk, we’ll review what the law means for your businesses and e-commerce operations. We’ll discuss how real-world compliance requirements are never quite as simple as governments think they are on paper, and how everyone involved in this reform got it so incredibly wrong. Finally, we’ll discuss what the VATMOSS experience suggests about the web profession’s future – and how we can turn it around.

Back in 2005 I managed a Mambo website, when Joomla was born. Since then I've been using the CMS and participating in the community at different levels. After more than 10 years, I've been able to experience how it feels to use Joomla on a daily basis from different perspectives, from a total newbie to a site integrator with a few years of experience. I've also been able to live in first person how different it is to be a "regular" community member from being a volunteer that holds a position in a specific area of the project, or even in a leadership position. In this sessions I'll try to share the most important things I've learnt and felt over these years, so others can learn from this experience and, hopefully, avoid the mistakes I made...

In times long ago, every worthwhile PC game had a demo version - a limited piece of the content so that people could check out the content, gameplay and so on. Programs like office suites and so on followed suit. The gaming industry has a long tradition of free demos and free trials, and it is no less important and fair to provide them in our field - with free trials of extensions, support services and hosting services.
CloudAccess.net has been providing a Free Trial program for 6 years now - first as the host of the official Joomla! Demo at http://demo.joomla.org and now with its own Free Site program. I have been with the company through all these years and would like to share my experiences with it - why I believe that a free trial is important, what are the advantages of it and what are the pitfalls of it and, as usual, share the "support guy side" view of it all.

Using a case story this session will take a hands on approach to how visitors behavioral patterns can be used to adjust and optimize the visitors experiences by accomodating the mega tendencies of the visitors of a website.
The Content Marketing Platform built on Joomla, records all steps and actions of the vistor and allows modules to be loaded based on the visitors actual behavior on the website.
In this session we go through the metodology and practical approach as well as an overview of how and why it matters to communicate on the basis of the visitors, and not of the website owner.
Websites are afterall build for visitors and users, not for the sake of the owner.
