Our relationship with websites is comprised of a series of interactions. Click a link, scroll down a page, submit a form—these are all interactions and they're at the core of what it means to experience a website. How quickly they happen matters incredibly, and ultimately shapes the overall user experience. This full-day workshop will show you how to make sure those interactions all take place quickly.
The switch to HTTP/2 is inevitable. Browser support is fantastic, server-side implementations are getting bulletproof, and many websites are making use of HTTP/2 already. Speed improvements are remarkable, and with Service Workers on top of HTTP/2 you can craft resilient and fast experiences. Yet for many website, a transition from HTTP/1.1 to HTTP/2 is painful and full of obstacles and unknowns. What practices should we reconsider when building and delivering websites? What about the deployment strategy? What about the migration from HTTP to HTTPS which is a requirement for HTTP/2?
In this full-day workshop, we'll explore the techniques and tools you need to begin building better performing sites right away.
In this workshop, you'll learn:
- How to sell performance to your boss and clients.
- How to identify performance bottlenecks in your sites and applications.
- The steps the browser goes through to display a page on your screen.
- What the critical rendering path is and how to optimize for it.
- What new technologies like HTTP/2 bring to the table.
