There are many aspects to delivering and maintaining a fast web experience for users. Tim Kadlec and Patrick Meenan explain how the construction of websites and applications impacts performance as well as how to quickly debug and resolve performance issues. Tim and Patrick dive into how browsers work, how web pages are delivered, backend and frontend issues, optimizations, and techniques to get the best performance and provide hands-on experience for working on web performance.
The training will be a combination of instructional material and hands-on exercises. You will learn how to integrate performance into your development culture and make it part of your development cycle from development through release and into maintenance.
