Look inside
Beautiful design, cool functionality, and optimized content won’t provide value if your visitors don’t stick around to enjoy it! Every extra second your web pages take to load or respond costs you visitors and sales. That’s why web performance is key to increasing engagement and conversions. Fortunately, as bandwidth-challenging functions proliferate, new tools are emerging to help developers fight the web performance battle.

about the book

In Exploring New Frontiers in Web Performance, author Barry Pollard has selected chapters from four Manning books to lay out the basics of modern performance-improving web tools and technologies. First, you’ll get an introduction to tools for assessing performance and identifying problems. Then you’ll take a look at HTTP/2—the first major revision of the web’s network protocol—and explore the advantages of running it as well as how it affects development practices. You’ll also delve into the game-changing impact of Progressive Web Apps, including what they are, the benefits they bring to the table, and the first steps to building them. In the final chapter, you’ll explore WebAssembly, a binary language that compiles to bytecode and can run at lightning-fast speed on all browsers, and discover the problems it solves. With this guide, you’ll have a firm grasp on the technologies available today to developers who want feature-rich websites that still have awesome performance, better sales, and higher conversion rates!
