Connect-JS Talk: Optimizing Front-end Web performance like a rockstar
My talk was entitled Optimizing front-end web performance like a rockstar. I covered common front-end optimization techniques, specifically focusing on making response bodies smaller and on making fewer requests. However, instead of just saying "do these optimizations" I spent a lot of time discussing how to automate these performance optimizations. If the fastest request is one the browser doesn't make, then the best performance optimization is the one you don't have to remember to do. Automation is the key to sustainably quick website.
Below are my slides.
