Last week it was my turn to bring something cool to the team and I decided to share was some stuff I learned at a meetup from earlier in the week.
The meetup was hosted by Sergey Chernyshev from the NY Web Performance meetup group and the topic was “Designing Speed with Progressive Enhancement”.
This presentation focused more on prioritizing loading and it also touched on pre-loading effects when navigating once already in the website.
Something to focus on is getting that time to “first paint” down to or below 3 seconds, so how can we do that?
When testing for your loading time I recommend using your browser of choice’s developer tools to simulate different mobile networks. This will allow you to see how your website is loading from your current WiFi connection but also allow you to see how it would load for a mobile user on their phone network.
For more of a breakdown and slew of other great Progressive Enhancement tips I highly recommend you look through Sergey’s entire presentation.
