Faster Websites: Crash Course on Web Performance By Ilya Grigorik on January 15, 2013 Delivering a fast and optimized user experience in the browser requires careful thinking across many layers of the stack - TCP and up. In a rather ambitious undertaking, when I got the chance to run a three hour (marathon) workshop at Devoxx 2012, I tried to do exactly that: a crash course on web performance.
