Bet on the Hare: Speeding Up Your Website

A session at University of Illinois Web Conference

Thursday 6th April, 2017

11:00am to 12:00pm (CST)

The prettiest website doesn't mean much if the users can't pull it up, or if they get bored and leave for another site. I'm going to talk about techniques in optimizing the speed of how pages load, including blocking JavaScript, script and style minification, caching, XML DOM changes, and Accelerated Mobile Pages (https://www.ampproject.org/). I'll also focus on how this connects to other website concerns, like accessibility, SEO, responsive design, and maintenance. I'll use our experience at the College of Education, working within a CMS where you don't necessarily have full control over the HTML.
