Tomas and I were able to attend the Build Conference for Nansen this year. It was an awesome experience and the conference had a lot of good energy and interesting sessions for us web developers! Tomas covered some excellent sessions in his blog post here, but there were just a few more I'd like to tack on to the list.

I'd recommend this session to anyone in web development - this was def one of my favorites! The speaker does a great job covering how web site traffic really works, how sites are loaded and in what order requests are made/handled - and how this impacts performance. He reviews some common sources of poor site performance and how to improve them. He also did a great job covering quite a bit in the short amount of time we had for this session.
And it's definitely not a back-end only session!

Hey, Visual Studio tips and tricks might not sound like the sexiest session out there - but knowing how to use your IDE is pretty sexy, right? Either way, just a few good tips from this session can improve a pretty massive part of your day - so you should watch it!
A lot of her tips are handy, especially when navigating larger projects. The slides from this session also contain some pretty useful short-cut key combo's you can use in Visual Studio and Windows.
It was a blast to have the chance to put faces to some of the blogs we read + share in excitement of it with fellow devs. All in all, Build was an amazing experience and very happy to have had the chance to go!
