Optimizing page load speed on front-end side
General overview of the current page load front-end optimization landscape.
Performance matters. One key component of web perf is page load speed. Page load speed plays a major factor on user experience. For seamless UX it is expected that a page should load in under one to two seconds at most! With every additional passing second UX plummets drastically driving the users away and decreasing likeliness of repeat visits. Simply put, nobody likes to stare at a loading icon while waiting for meaningful content to appear and the web page to become interactive.
What can you do to improve page load speed? How do you even measure it? In this talk we’ll try and help answer those questions by giving a systematic overview of a wide array of well established but also some newer front-end optimization techniques, strategies, and tools. Find out how caching, delivery networks, http/2, machine learning, bundling, GDPR (!?) ... and much more can affect page load speed and how do they fit into the big picture of web perf optimization.
