#aeabos: Responsive Design Performance Budget

Paul Irish's talk is a bit too technical for me. But while I was googling references I came across this line on his colleague Ilya Grigorik's personal site:

A GOAL IS A DREAM WITH A DEADLINE.

Other takeaways from Paul's talk:

Improving mobile performance.

  • Bandwidth vs. Latency: impact on page loading time
    • Video streaming is bandwidth; bandwidth is related to page size.
    • Web browsing is latency; latency is related to how many requests the page sends.
    • Eliminate render-blocking Javascript and CSS. Deliver goods.
  • The performance waterfall - this I have to read a blog post to understand.
