The Future of Web Performance: Are Today's Good Practices Tomorrow's Performance Anti-Patterns?
As mobile usage rises, browsers evolve and new protocols are deployed will our current good practices last, or will they become barriers that hinder performance? This session will explore our current performance best practices, and question when some of them stop being best practices. Weâ€™ll dive into the technical details to understand why browser and protocol changes impact our current practices and how we need to adapt them going forward. You will come away asking questions about some of our performance practices, an understanding of how browser evolution and new protocols can impact them, and ideas about how you can prepare for the future.
