Last November, Cash Williams published a pair of blog posts (Can I beat Dries? and Removing Unneeded Requests) challenging Dries to a "speed challenge". And so naturally my boss tasked me to make our 1xinternet.de just as fast. But our site is not a simple blog, but a robust Drupal site with a lot of images! Could it be done? We'll find out in this session!
This session will follow the process of improving the performance of 1xinternet.de, including:
- Initial analysis using Google's Lighthouse
- Performance (first paint, time to interactive)
- Best Practices (HTTPS usage, image aspect ratios)
- What steps we took
- Our progress so far in Lighthouse and WebPageTest (which Cash originally used for speed testing)
- Next steps
This session is ideal for beginner or intermediate developers looking to learn more about optimizing website performance.
