Web Performance & Compatibility Lab

Workshop

A website that performs badly is akin to a Ferrari with no fuel in; nice to look at but fairly useless.

Research shows that most web users give a site up to 2 seconds before subconsciously deciding whether to continue with the site or bounce to another. If your site is still loading after that 2 seconds passes or parts of your site are not compatible with the users browser, you're already dead.

In this lab, we'll walk you through the key areas to focus on when tuning and optimising your site for real web users. We'll walk though through tools, techniques and resources needed to fine tune your own site.

By then end of the session, you'll be well equipped to make sure every site you build performs like a Ferrari (with fuel in).
