Web Performance

by Robert Boedigheimer

This course will focus primarily on how to use techniques to reduce the number of files that must be requested, the size of the files, and how often the files need to be requested to increase performance

What you'll learn

Modern web pages require browsers to download upwards of 100 files (CSS, JavaScript, Images) for each page request. Most of the time spent on these pages is due to these components, not the time it takes to execute server side web pages. This course will focus primarily on how to use techniques to reduce the number of files that must be requested, the size of the files, and how often the files need to be requested to increase performance. Proper application of these techniques can greatly decrease the time needed to view a web page, while also reducing bandwidth and load on the web servers.
