Many new projects grow from a small base to a full blown app in time. Besides the pride of the accomplishments the developer now has to care about behind-the-scenes-stuff like page load, caching and effective webdesign to keep or improve the current speed when using the project.
Speed – or to be more precise the lack of it – is one of the major annoyances and a main reason for users to not come back. So it is in your own best interest to reach the best possible speed.
I found a very extensive list of website optimization techniques which I wanted to share with you (and to keep a link for future references). I can’t really say that by now I even follow half the list of improvements but I will certainly try to make the next app better than the one before – as always.
