Asset Redux - Front end performance on Rails

A session at London Web Meet-up

Thursday 21st August, 2014

7:30pm to 9:30pm (GMT)

Web application speed is paramount. Our users want our application and they want it now! We can optimise application code, database queries and so on, but that's all wasted if the page takes ages to appear. A fast back end and a slow front end can end up leaving a bad taste in the mouth.

Using Rails, we'll look at the best ways to speed up the delivery of your application. Going beyond just minifying our assets, we'll look at techniques to get our site in the user's browser quicker, improving both real and perceived speed. We'll also discover the best tools to use to check out speed and get a better idea of the user's opinion of the site.Once finished, our sites will load in a flash!
