Tim Kadlec on "Building Performant Websites" (April 4th, San Francisco)

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.


In this workshop, you'll learn:

  • Why performance matters from a business perspective.
  • How to test for, and identify, performance issues in your own sites and applications.
  • Tools you can use for maintaining and analyzing performance.
  • How to prioritize performance in your workflow to ensure it isn't left to chance.
  • Common performance pitfalls people run into and how to avoid them.
  • Techniques for making sure that your page renders as quickly as possible.

This workshop is for any front-end developers or designers who want to start building better-performing sites. As long as you're at least familiar with the basics of HTML and CSS, you'll feel right at home.
