This was a presentation I gave at the November 2011 Codeaholics meetup and at BarCamp Hong Kong 2011. The slides also have some brief notes.
At the time, it didn’t seem like a lot of developers in Hong Kong were aware of (front-end) web performance; I had hoped to raise some awareness. Being a meetup for professional programmers and code enthusiasts, some in the Codeaholics crowd were already versed in the basics. I became nervous at that thought and spoke too fast. The BarCamp session fared better.
