Improving Web Performance in a Mobile World

  • Pfeil Innovation Center 420 N Niles Ave South Bend, IN 46617 (map)

Mobile usage has grown by leaps and bounds over the last decade, and not just for entertainment. Financial decisions are being made using mobile devices, and if your website is slow, it can influence how users perceive your brand.

Erik Runyon, Technical Director for the University of Notre Dame Marketing Communications Web team will help us:

  • Better understand why web performance matters, and not just to mobile users
  • Share with co-workers real-world examples of where time equals money
  • Measure our site’s performance and compare it to your competitors (with videos!)
  • Influence, and improve, the performance of our company’s website for bigger sales


Erik has been developing websites for fun and profit since 1995, and joined Notre Dame in 2007. Known throughout higher-ed as a pioneer for mobile and Responsive Web Design (RWD), he presents at multiple conferences, both higher-ed and industry-wide, each year. He is also a Concurrent Assistant Professional Specialist, teaching "Introduction to Web Development" for the CAPP department.
