Quickly delivering images over variable networks to thousands of different screens may seem to be an impossible task. But all is not lost!

We’ll look at progressive images, placeholder images, lazy loading and other techniques and real-world examples that will improve the usability of your site or app. Attendees will come away with an understanding of the current ‘state of the art’ for optimizing visual content on the web.
