Have Your Cake And Eat it Too: A Primer on Performance

A session at Peers Conference 2015

Friday 1st May, 2015

10:00am to 11:00am (EST)

What do speedy websites and cake have in common? Everybody loves them! Why is this relevant? Because building a performant website is like delivering a wedding cake: it’s a team effort, and each member of the team needs to understand the impact they have on the entire experience. As builders of the web, performance is our most important job, dictating a users happiness and willingness to use a product.

This talk outlines how performance is everybody's job: from content strategy to design decisions to front end architecture, and will discuss how to optimize performance in each step of the process. The audience will understand the neuroscience behind page speed and will leave this talk with several tools, recommendations, and techniques to build performant websites and make the internet a better place.
