What is #WPOchat?

#WPOchat is a NEW monthly chat on Twitter for the Web Performance Optimization Community.

Why?

The rapidly growing #Webperf worldwide community on Twitter is a lively and engaging community with Meetups (London/Paris/Boston/NYC/SF/LA), a few conferences both virtual and real world (Velocity etc.) We believe a monthly loosely organized community lead chat on Twitter will help bring the community together and support the community.

Who?

This is a community chat – anyone can join and participate in the conversation. We hope to have community leaders like Steve Souders, #WebPerf Meetup attendees, and thoughtleaders at commercial entities like dynaTrace, Yottaa, etc.

How?

The last Thursday of the month at 6 PM ET the community will login to Twitter and join the conversation. Each month there will be a different “topic” and a moderator and/or guest attendee (selected by the community) who will ask questions related to the topics. Participants are free to reply, re-tweet or comment on each other’s Tweets.

When?

Picking a time that makes sense worldwide is never easy. However it seems that 6pm Eastern Time USA makes it accessible to night owls in Europe, end of workday East coast and afternoon break on the West coast. Each chat will be about 60 minutes. The best day is probably the last Thursday each month. Rain/Shine/Holiday – we will always be on.
