Publisher Comments:

Performance is a key factor for any web site. Too many developers treat performance as an afterthought, creating the site first and tuning it at the end. Pro High-Performance Web Development Techniques advocates the opposite; performance should be considered from the outset and should be an integral part of the development of any site.

By implementing practical techniques that can be applied throughout a project's life cycle, this book teaches how standards-based sites can be developed and tweaked for the best performance while maintaining their usability. Explains real-world, practical techniques for improving the performance of your web sites Covers most popular client and server-side technologies, such as PHP, Python, Ruby, CSS, and HTML Includes bite-size tips and techniques that can be applied to any project What you'll learn Apply tips and techniques to front-end code to decrease the use of server resources. Develop online tools that make applying performance techniques easier. Learn how to benchmark your code. Create performance boosters in PHP, Python, and Ruby. Find out how client processor and connection speed can affect your site, and what you can do to get around this problem. Identify bugs in mainstream JavaScript libraries and learn how to squash them.
