The 12th edition of Paris Web – the unmissable event dedicated to web quality – has been held last week. With Dareboost – for the very first time – as one of the sponsors. As a matter of fact, our on-site stand has not been – by far – the only place where one would learn about web performance! This event also allowed us to meet long-time clients and partners, as well as Harry Roberts, a renowned and amazing speaker and also a prescriber for Dareboost!
One stand & 2 speakers for the Dareboost team!
Great start for Dareboost at Paris Web 2017: we took this opportunity to announce one more recruitment at Dareboost, with the arrival of Matthieu “Twikito” Bué within our team as our Front-End Developer!
As a consequence, we have been proud not only to get associated with this beautiful event and promote our service but also to see 2 of our teammates getting on stage:
- Boris Schapira with his stand-up “I get in a store…”: the transposition of usual drifts of the web to Brick & Mortar shopping and the lessons to be learned from it.
- Matthieu Bué with his “Rendez-vous en terre inconnue”: an uncompromising feedback on his commitment to a major web project.
We also have been amazed – and pleased – by the numerous Dareboost customers we have met on our stand during Paris Web. It has been a great pleasure to discuss with all of them! Many thanks for all these positive feedbacks that encourage us to keep on working hard at offering the best web performance monitoring tool!
Thanks also for all these inspiring exchanges with people interested in our service. If you haven’t found time to come and meet us, feel free to contact us now: it is still time to ask for a demo!
Two conferences dedicated to web performance
Harry Roberts: Why Fast Matters
While we had the opportunity to meet Harry at the traditional Community Aperitif ending the first day of Paris Web, we attended his “Why Fast Matters” conference. One conference already performed by Harry in many countries and which had led us to contact him – as we have discovered that he was one of our prescribers!
Beyond the relevance of his message, we have discovered a top-level speaker! Furthermore It has been such a huge pride for our team to see our product recommended this way (beside a few competitors of course).
We particularly appreciated the concrete examples to illustrate the issues related to the “Next Billion Users” and the provided advice to engage an effective approach of web performance management. Do not miss this reviewable conference!

Obviously, a few other conferences have addressed the web performance topic, but the one from Geoffrey Crofte was completely devoted to it. Therefore, it particularly caught our attention.
Improving Performance: Between Reality and Perception
After having reminded the web performance stakes, Geoffrey focused on the difference between objective and psychological times. Indeed, mostly regarding psychological time, Geoffrey’s conference gives tricks and best practices to improve the perception of waiting time. As how to improve the user experience thanks to an original spinner or how to give a feeling of speed while building a loading bar, as a few examples.
Quality, accessibility and performance … back in 2018?
Paris Web has been rich in encounters and exchanges for us. Definitely a fantastic moment spent on the spot! Defending web quality and accessibility, Paris Web encourages dialogue between web professionals. Such values that we share and carry every day through our website analysis tool and a service built to be collaborative.
A huge thank you to the staff, also very available also for building up our partnership. One partnership that we obviously plan to renew for the 2018 edition!
