Presentation: Mobile Web Performance - Getting & Staying Fast!

Track: Bleeding Edge HTML5 & JavaScript - Taking the Web Platform to the Next Level / Time: Thursday 11:30 - 12:20 / Location: Mountbatten Room

Websites that are fast and smooth are critical for a good user experience and increasingly we expect sites to perform as well on our mobile phone as they do on our laptop.

But the mobile web isn’t just a small screen experience, it can be a flakey network, slow processor, low memory experience and this presents huge challenges to us as developers.
