Progressive Enhancement For Better Performance

Last week I had the pleasure of speaking to the great crowd at the New York Web Performance Group Meetup. Fellow presenter Marco Carag (Front End Manager at The Knot) laid down a strong foundation with a discussion of where HTML and CSS sit on the Progressive Enhancement ladder. Following that I came in and talked about JavaScript’s different roles in PE, client side performance, and browser support of upcoming Web Standards. Here’s the slide deck from my portion of the presentation:

The second to last slide mentions a few great supporting articles if you’re interested in how best practices and performance go hand in hand and didn’t make the talk:

Thanks again to Marco and Sergey for the invitation to speak, Interactive One for hosting the event, and all those in attendance for the great questions along the way!
