Join James Williamson for an in-depth discussion in this video Improving site performance, part of Learning Responsive Design.
When building responsive designs, designers often get so caught up with the visual design…and functionality of the site that they overlook one of the most critical aspects of building…for multiple devices, and that is site performance.…In designing for the desktop, we become accustomed to creating sites that are built for high-…bandwidth consistent connections.…That's not the case with mobile devices, where you have to deal with a totally different…set of performance issues.…Network connections and bandwidth speed can vary wildly from user to user, or even during a single session.…
Network latency can slow sites as well, regardless of connection speeds, and user behaviors like…riding a train or getting into an elevator can affect loading.…So, obviously, if you're going to design across multiple devices and platform, performance…becomes a bigger concern.…There are many ways to improve performance, but perhaps the most overlooked is also the most simple.…Be sure to keep your code as lean and clutter-free as possible.…
