Tammy Everts


Chief Experience Officer
As Chief Experience Officer at SpeedCurve, Tammy explores the intersection between web performance, user experience, and business metrics. She uses these findings to help build better tools that help site owners understand their visitors in ways that are most meaningful to them and their business.

Tammy has been studying how people use the internet since the olden days, when being able to center text was a big deal and you could have any color of website you wanted (as long as that color was grey). Her 20-year research journey into the heart of UX began when she rigged out her first usability test lab with a state-of-the-art Power Mac 9500. Since then, she’s also done some pretty far-out studies involving EEG headsets and facial action coding.

Her book, Time Is Money: The Business Value of Web Performance, was published by O’Reilly Media in 2016. She co-curates (with Tim Kadlec) WPO Stats, a collection of case studies and experiments demonstrating the impact of web performance optimization on user experience and business metrics.
