About the Book
First things first, let's define what web optimisation is.
Web optimisation aims at enhancing a website's performance to make a more satisfying user experience. It generally deals with improving the design of a website to increase the speed of loading and page functionalities. Efficient and optimised websites increase the duration of user interaction, increase the traffic volumes and improve the search engine scores.
So let's talk about performance. Performance is not a project, it's a process, kind of. So it cannot be considered a project because you cannot just build a team to do performance optimisation. Optimise after you build everything is gonna take a huge impact on the delivery time, it's gonna be a huge impact on cost. This is because some part of the optimisation process needs to be thought before the actual implementation. Some can actually happen after, some needs to happen before.
You need to think about performance even when you write the CSS. And you need to think about performance when you configure the web server, database server, the actual virtual machine, or, physical machine.
It's quite a horizontal process. It's not a project. Definitely not. So because it's a process, it involves every engineer in the building to do its part about performances, to think about performance. If everyone actually thinks how to make it better, a faster, lighter, the end result is definitely gonna be faster.
