SMX London 2009 turned out to be another hugely successful and enjoyable conference, both inside and outside the conference building! With plenty of useful content across both days and heaps of networking and hanging out with some really nice people, I thoroughly recommend attending next year. In the meantime – here’s my presentation from “Diagnosing Website Architecture Issues”, presented with together with Rand, Heini, and Luisella Mazza of Google.
Overall, the session was extremely exciting. Here are some key takeaways from the presentation and some tips I gave in conversation during my intro and the Q&A session:
Use httpFox to view server headers as you browse a website. Test that broken URLs actually give a 404
Use the “Domain details” plugin for Firefox to see serrver location and IP in your Firefox info bar
