    My first professional web development was at a small print shop where I sat in a windowless cubical all day. I suffered that boxed in environment for almost five years before I was able to find a remote job where I worked from home. The first...

    I love to look around the MooTools Forge. As someone that creates lots of plugins, I get a lot of joy out of seeing what other developers are creating and possibly even how I could improve them. One great plugin I've found is...

  1. My favourite client side performance testing tool is GTMetrix a web based performance tester. Link: http://gtmetrix.com/

  2. webpagetest.org

  3. I use mocha, I especially started using mocha with co and –harmony: https://github.com/visionmedia/co/blob/master/test/arrays.js

    • Oops I read that as testing tool. I use jsperf for quick tests and devtools for anything heavier

    Profiling in the Google Chrome Console mixed with PageSpeed Insights are really useful for performance testing.

  5. For testing I use the Chrome Dev Tools and a gulp task PageSpeedTest

    I live in NYC area and I really want to go to this event… And I would be happy to share a blog post talking about the event…

    People. You can’t beat the frustration of a potential user in the testing phase to motivate you to make things faster.

  7. Chrome Dev Tools and New Relic

  8. Chrome’s Dev Tools primarily.

  9. Hey David,
    My favourite client side performance testing tools are
    1- Chrome Dev Tools
    2- Gtmetrix
    3- Pingdom (to some extent)
    4- & sometimes New Relic helps a lot.

    Chrome Developer Tools is the best without any doubts

  11. I do not have a favorite tool as I am new to the testing and DevOps world. I would greatly benefit from the tickets by jump starting my learning as I am already passionate about learning these skills. Please help a developer discover the way! I will return the favor!

    I use Chrome dev tools
