Frontend Performance - Where it matters

A session at Frontend Conference Zurich 2013

Thursday 29th August, 2013

3:30pm to 4:30pm (CET)

The fact that it matters if your site takes 2 or 20 seconds to load probably does not surprise you. But how does this knowledge impact your frontend coding? There are plenty of advices on how to make your page faster. Some of them only apply to very big international sites, some of them only save you milliseconds. But there are some best practices, some tricks to be aware of and some traps to avoid.

This talk is about best practices which affect the performance of your page. And you'll see some real world examples from one of the biggest media sites in Switzerland, www.srf.ch
