Recap of Altitude 2015, Fastly’s first customer summit

Last week, we hosted our first customer summit, Altitude 2015, at the SFJAZZ Center. Our goal was to bring together our customers and the people who build our products to discuss web performance, Varnish, and the future of Fastly.

Customers shared how they’re using Fastly to optimize for speed and scalability, Catchpoint’s CEO Mehdi Daoudi taught us the importance of performance monitoring, and Chief SpeedCurver Steve Souders explained how design and web performance are now more interconnected than ever before. Attendees also had the option of learning Varnish best practices with an Advanced VCL workshop.

Thanks to our MC and VP of Technology Hooman Beheshti for gracefully guiding us through an incredible inaugural summit. If you attended or spoke at Altitude, thank you so much for spending the day with us and sharing your insights. For those of you who couldn’t join us, we’ve put together a wrap-up of the presentations that took place below.
