Miss my workshop at Velocity Europe? The slides are now up!. These days our users expect smooth scrolling, buttery smooth animations and interactions, especially on mobile. We need to start caring about not just how quickly our sites load but also how fast they run and are painted to the screen.
In my workshop, I walk through how the browser turns the DOM into pixels on the screen, a workflow for finding and fixing rendering bottlenecks and real-world case studies of Flickr, Pinterest, Google+, Twitter Bootstrap and a number of other sites.
I hope you find them useful!.
Huge thanks go to Paul Lewis, Paul Irish and Jake Archibald for all their fantastic work in this area over the past year.
