About Paul Calvano

Hi! I’m Paul Calvano. I work as a Performance Architect at Etsy, where I help optimize the performance of their online marketplace. I’ve actually been doing web performance work since 2000, which I guess makes me old :). Previously, I worked at Akamai Technologies, and Keynote (which was later aquired by Dynatrace).

I’m also a co-maintainer of the HTTP Archive, a really cool open source project that has been tracking the evolution of the web since 2010! I had the privilege of writing 2 chapters of the 2019 Web Almanac (Caching and Compression) as well as contributing to the 2020, 2021 and 2022 almanac!

Additionally, I’m also a co-organizer of the NY Web Performance Meetup. If you are interested in giving a live or virtual talk at this event, please reach out. We also run monthly Meet4Speed sessions, where we take requests from the community for site’s to analyze during a live session. These session are always a lot of fun, and anyone is welcome to join!

You can find me sharing web performance insights on Twitter, LinkedIn, Mastodon, as well as the HTTP Archive via their blog and discussion forum. I’ve also attempted to mirror all of my posts on this website so that they are easily searchable.

When I’m not being nerd sniped with really interesting web performance problems, I’m usually having fun with my 4 awesome kids, cycling, baking and traveling.
