High performance HTML:

samdutton.wordpress.com/2015/04/02/high-performance-html

How can you improve the performance of web pages?

Most developers look to JavaScript, images and other kinds of optimisation. HTML gets neglected – despite being the core language of the web.

Well crafted HTML is a crucial foundation for building fast-loading pages and layouts that respond successfully to different viewports. In this article you’ll learn how to write clean, concise HTML that enables you to create content that loads fast and works well across a variety of devices. In the process, you’ll learn how to build sites and apps that are easier to debug and maintain.

Getting started with responsive images? 

Check out my free Udacity course: udacity.com/ud882.

Huge respect to +Cameron Pittman and the +Udacity crew for their brilliant work on this.

Learn how to work with images on the modern web, so that your content works well on a variety of phones, tablets, desktop and other devices.

We'll show you a range of techniques to adapt and respond to different viewport sizes and usage scenarios: how to deal with small and large screens with varying 'pixel density', and how to provide the best experience despite unpredictable connectivity:

• What are responsive images?
• Responsive image sizing.
• Making the most of image formats: compression types, raster and vector, SVG, inline images, CSS patterns and backgrounds.
• Images without images: 10 ways to include images without an image element.
• Responsive tools for optimization, testing and workflow automation.
• <picture>, <source>, srcset, sizes... WTF?
