Portrait of Tobias Baldauf

Well hello! I'm Tobias Baldauf, web performance evangelist, web performance solutions architect at Akamai Technologies, fresh father, uncaffeinated veggy, happy hiker, music lover and forever curious geek.

I have a passion for full stack web development and created ISO-certified interfaces for European train operations as well as tools for the world’s largest peering exchange as lead web developer for eco / DE-CIX with an agile, cross-functional team of dedicated admins, designers & developers.

As a web performance evangelist, I love speaking at events such as O'Reilly Velocity Conferences, WebPerfDays and many others on web performance optimization, image saliency mapping and front end engineering. Find out where I'll speak next →

I spend my off-code time with Corinna & our beautiful baby, playing the Bodhrán in an Irish Folk band & organizing Germany’s first web performance group, the Cologne Web Performance Meetup.
