YOW! Night 2017 Brisbane – Andrew Betts & Hannah Malcolm – Aug 10


The Power of the Network

Web developers are increasingly responsible for the performance of the sites they build, and there is now a plethora of advanced tools and services that allow developers to hone front end performance as never before. But the network can still be your biggest bottleneck.

This talk will discuss best practices and creative strategies for using caching, purging, preloading, server push, streaming, and other technologies to make sure your site hits your user’s browser at top speed.
