Hello everyone,

We are excited to announce that the Web Performance devroom will be returning for FOSDEM 2024! This time the room is a joint effort of Mozilla and Wikimedia Foundation.

The web performance devroom will focus on ongoing open standards development and FLOSS projects that support performance of the world wide web. The web performance field is driven by open standards (browser APIs, internet protocols), and relies on many FLOSS tools to monitor, analyze and improve performance.

Most conferences about this topic tend to focus on best practices and standards once they’ve been finalized, while the ongoing creation of standards and FLOSS tooling development is rarely talked about. The objective of this devroom is to bring focus to the future of web performance through open standards, and open source developer tools.

Here’s some topic suggestions:
FLOSS tools to monitor, measure, analyze, optimize backend or frontend web performance
Open standards (eg. HTTP/3, upcoming JS/HTML/CSS standards)
Academic research on web performance
Share your web performance story: Share your challenges and your solutions and what you learned 
Ethical web performance: Address the balance between performance optimization and user privacy, especially in the context of increasing concerns about data collection practices by large corporations.

Please submit your talk proposal by December 1st. We will let you know if your call has been accepted by December 15th.

All talks will be in person, and can be 15 to 45 minutes in duration (including Q&A).

You can submit your talk proposal at https://fosdem.org/submit making sure to select Web Performance as the track.

Best of luck!
