The modern developer workflow often starts with authoring a simple page, followed by a live push, but often concludes with a bottleneck discovery. With near certainty, the application was not tested, despite the availability of a testing tool a keystroke away: option-command-i bka Developer Tools (or Web Inspector for you know who).

‘Slashing Bad User Experience’ will equip developers with the capacity to correctly conduct a site analysis, expanding on known features, exposing new ones, and provide solutions in the dissolution of performance bottlenecks and poor user experiences.
