As a web designer, you have tough choices to make when it comes to aesthetics versus performance. Content, layout, images, and interactivity are necessary components to engage your audience, but one each has an enormous impact on page load time. +Lara Swanson knows this first hand, and is in the process of writing a book to help you figure it out. Designing for Performance is now available in #EarlyRelease  format from +O'Reilly, meaning you will have access to the content as it is being written. You can find the first three chapters here, and as Lara updates and revises, you'll be kept up to date: http://oreil.ly/1lGLIgX

Uplink Latency of WiFi and 4G Networks: http://bit.ly/1kT4cfA - a deep dive into the radio layer... fun stuff!

TL;DR: WiFi makes no latency promises; 4G incurs scheduling costs but offers more stable performance. To minimize latency, don't trickle data!

Performance Tricks for Mobile Web Development

First of all, don't believe "performance tricks" posts, including this one, writes Matteo Spinelli. Test, test, and test again. But Spinelli offers some smart, simple tips for improving performance along with amusing demos on how to do it wrong.

If you haven't checked out the Web Performance community yet, you should -- Dan's right in saying it's a great community! In the meantime, check out his blogpost on optimising website performance.

Great community! I wrote a blog post about optimising website performance. Considering going more in-depth on these points in future, showing examples and code.  Would welcome any thoughts, contributions and corrections from this community. Thanks!
performance is king. Slow, unresponsive user interfaces and long page load times will not only drive users away, by optimising website performance you can make sure this doesn't happen.

+Dave Zwieback might have an unconventional approach when it comes to hiring, but when traditional recruiting is broken, you have to look at it differently. Read more about his #DevOps  approach to hiring here: http://oreil.ly/1hVenux

+Mike Loukides talks about the benefits of becoming a full-stack developer in a recent blogpost:

"The more you expose yourself to different kinds of thought, the more you know about disciplines other than your own, the more effective you’ll be — both because you will understand how to collaborate with your colleagues and because you’ll have a broad repertoire of ideas and concepts to help in your own work."

If you've been waiting (im)patiently for the Velocity Europe CFP to open, it's your lucky day! We're looking for practitioners, engineers, developers, system administrators, operations managers, architects, and more. If you're on the front lines, and have stories of great success (as well as worthy failures) that provide clear ideas for what to do next, we want to hear. Submissions are open through 3 June: http://oreil.ly/1gFsQdP
