Mobile Image Processing

Tim Kadlec | @tkadlec ( | (

Loading images isn’t as simple as you think. We often discuss image weight and download time, but mobile devices deal with many other challenges, such as decode times in underpowered CPUs, limited CPU/GPU transfers, and memory consumption. In this talk we’ll explain those limitations, their impact, and how you can best handle them on your own site.

Tim is a web technology advocate pushing for a faster web at Akamai. He is the author of Implementing Responsive Design: Building sites for an anywhere, everywhere web, and was a contributing author for Smashing Book #4: New Perspectives on Web Design, and Web Performance Daybook Volume 2.
