as part of Optimising the Web – A Front End Talk
Understanding the various stages of how the browser builds the DOM, how to optimise HTML, CSS and JS, how networking plays a part and what AMP and PWAs add to the performance landscape. This is a very technical but pretty high level talk that intends to introduce the audience to virtually every topic they would wish to deep dive into in the future.
