We all have day jobs, but more often than not, they don’t include performance (sad face). Keeping up with latest performance trends can be time consuming and hard. This tutorial does that work for you.
Gareth Hughes and Michael Gooding guide you through the top five performance techniques for today’s modern browsers and provide the tools and knowledge you need to implement them today, covering topics like service workers, image optimizations, HTTPS and HTTP/2, preloads and preconnects, and compression. For each topic, Gareth and Michael offer an introduction to the technique, share the benefits gained from implementing it along with real-world examples, the benefits gained from implementing, helpful tips, case studies, and, when possible, a live demo, and explore adoption rates. You’ll leave armed with an understanding of how you can prioritize and apply performance improvements to your own applications effectively.
