Should that script tag go in the head or at the bottom of the body? Do you really need to be using CSS sprites? What triggers a browser reflow and why should you care? How does the new HTTP/2 spec play into all of this? In this session, Shahab will run through the most common mistakes that lead to slower page loads and poor browser performance. You'll learn how the browser actually processes your code, which tools you can use to test your own sites, and what you should be doing to improve page performance immediately.
