Fastly Altitude - June 25, 2015. Chief SpeedCurver Steve Souders explains how design and web performance are more interconnected than ever before. Users want a fast website with a rich design, but sometimes the interplay between design and performance feels like a fixed sum game: one side's gain is the other side's loss. Design and performance are indeed connected, but it's more like the yin and yang. They aren't opposing forces, but instead complement each other. Bringing these processes together produces experiences that are rich and fast.
