The Joy of Optimising

14:00 on Tuesday, 9 May in Cavalli Main Hall

Images are by far the greatest bottleneck to performance on the web, and with the average web page size now about 2.5MB large (images taking up 65% of that), we need to tame the beast. This talk will dive deep into image rendering and performance optimization techniques, and demonstrate how to implement them in your own work with practical examples to make your web projects noticeably faster.
