Objective

To explain how to improve page load speeds without compromising on quality.

Description

Most of the sites - including the ones whose primary usage is from mobiles - seem to take speed for granted. While responsive design has become the norm for most modern websites, the speed is generally overlooked.

But on the brighter side, it’s not so hard to fix it. With a few simple build steps, you can achieve 90+ score on Google Pagespeed, as we did for recruiterbox.com.

Inspired by SmashingMagazine’s perfect 100/100, we started going aggressively after performance bottlenecks for recruiterbox.com, and managed to get 91 on mobile and 94 on desktop, though we still have some more optimizations pending.

I’ll share the learnings, along with the step-by-step process we went through.

Requirements

Basic knowledge about HTML, CSS & front-end build tools (gulp/grunt).

Speaker bio
