Presentation

Overview

Ahh… CSS and performance. Two of Harry’s favourite things! But how well do they play together? It depends…

In this very matter-of-fact talk, he’ll be looking at all of the different ways CSS can make our websites faster or slower. From the common and perhaps more obvious, to the unusual and obscure ways in which CSS can impact performance for better or worse.

Objective

To show the audience that CSS can have an impact on performance, and often in quite unusual or unexpected ways.

Target Audience

Level
