Paul Irish is a front-end developer who loves the web. He’s thinking a lot about how to make you more productive with tools that improve your workflow help you make slicker, sexier, mobile web sites and webapps. He is also a Developer Advocate for Google Chrome and he works on tools like Modernizr, Yeoman, HTML5 Please, CSS3 Please, and other bits and bobs of open source code.
Here you are: developing a site on your 15"-plus desktop screen, reloading files from hard disk with nanosecond latency. There your user is: viewing your work on a sub-6" screen waiting up to a second for every file to even begin downloading before they can see something.
How can you design for that experience and get your site to the user quickly? Paul will show some of the science behind the page load and offer a toolset to help you and your boss identify key & measurable improvements and fix 'em.
