Importance of performance
•  Is it dev? QA? Afterthought?
•  Developers love it
•  But is it good for business?
Importance of performance
•  Self-regulating system
•  Slow down = lose users
•  We all hate slow pages

Less HTTP requests - drawback
•  atomic components
•  invalidated by small changes


•  need to schedule changes
Less stuff? Cache
•  Cache is less universal than
we think
•  You can help


http://yuiblog.com/blog/2007/01/04/performance-research-part-2/
“never expire” policy
•  Static components with far-
future Expires header
•  JS, CSS, img

ExpiresActive On 
ExpiresByType image/png "access plus 10 years" 
Inline vs. external
•  a.k.a. less http vs. more
cache
•  how about both?
Inline vs. external
•  First visit:


1. Inline
2. Lazy-load the external file
3. Write a cookie
Inline vs. external
•  Later visits:


1. Read cookie
2. Refer to the external file
Less stuff – duh!
•  No 404s
•  No duplicates
•  No near-duplicates
Duplicates

            HTML, XHTML, XML,
           W00TChaMaCallitML,
            CSS, JS, JSON, HTC,
         plain text… all but binary

Minify
•  YUI Compressor
•  Minifies JS and CSS
•  Tolerates * and _ hacks
•  More than minification
Minify
•  Minify inline code too
Gzip or minification?
•  62,885 bytes - original jQuery (back in
Aug 2007)
•  31,822 - minified with the YUI
Compressor
•  19,758 - original gzipped
•  10,818 - minified and gzipped                FTW


http://www.julienlecomte.net/blog/2007/08/13/
Minify
•  minify HTML?
•  dangerous
•  write minified HTML

echo '<div class="my">', 
       '<p>', 
          $db‐>get('name'), 
       '</p>', 
     '<div>'; 
Minify
•  Strip quotes? No closing tags?
•  Some sites do



    <body bgcolor=#ffffff text=#000000 link=#0000cc 
 vlink=#551a8b alink=#ff0000 onload="...." topmargin=3 
  marginheight=3><textarea id=csi style=display:none>

Free-falling waterfalls
•  Less DNS lookups – fetch
   components from not more
   than 2-4 domains
•  Less redirects
•  Blocking JavaScript/CSS
Not free-falling
JavaScript rocks!
•  But also blocks

   html
          js
               png

               png
Non-blocking JavaScript
•    Include via DOM
     html
                  js

            png

            png


var js = document.createElement('script'); 
js.src = 'myscript.js'; 
var h = document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0]; 
h.appendChild(js); 
Non-blocking JavaScript
•  And what about my inline
   scripts?
•  Setup a collection (registry)
   of inline scripts
Step 1
•  Inline in the <head>:

var myapp = { 
  stuff: [], 
}; 
Step 2
•    Add to the registry

Instead of:
  <script>alert('boo!');</script> 
Do:
  <script> 
    myapp.stuff.push(function(){ 
      alert('boo!'); 
    }); 
  </script> 
Step 3
•  Execute all

var l = myapp.stuff.length;  
for(var i = 0, i < l; i++) { 
  myapp.stuff[i](); 
} 
Blocking CSS?



But they do block:
•  In FF2
•  When followed by
   an inline script

Lazy-load

•  bells & whistles
•  badges & widgets
Preload

•  to help next page’s
waterfall
•  img, CSS, JS, DNS lookups
XHR (Ajax)

•  small – gzip, JSON
•  less – Expires 
•  GET over POST
GET vs. POST for XHR

CSS refactoring
•  CSS tends to grow
•  Find unused selectors –
   DustMeSelectors extension
•  Cleanup things like:
   #header #menu {...} 
   div#menu {...} 
   ul li {...} 
No AlphaImageLoader
#some‐element {

Words of Wisdom
Performance matters
•  It affects the user happiness
•  It affects the bottom line
Front-end
•  That’s where most of the time
is spent
It’s a marathon
•  Not a sprint
•  Measure, monitor, link to
business metrics
•  Bugs are expensive as the
time passes, performance
bugs even more so
What’s a low-hanging fruit?
•  Takes one engineer
•  Takes 15 minutes


Steve Krug
For non-low-hanging fruits?
1.  Pick 2 or 3
2.  Fix, measure one by one
3.  Come back and iterate
Thank you!
