Description

In this production, Sam Saffron (formerly of StackOverflow) rips apart Tekpub.com in an effort to optimize it for speed. As a result, Tekpub.com goes from an almost-failing YSlow grade to an A - with a Google Page Speed score of 96. Watch as Rob Conery optimizes his site - concatenating and minifying css and javascript, rolling to a CDN, setting up dynamic compression and proper image caching, unblocking page loads with proper script placement, and a lot more.
