Fast and Beautiful: Modern Image Delivery Techniques

The average mobile website page weight is ~50% images. Quickly delivering images over variable networks to thousands of different screens may seem to be an impossible task. But all is not lost! In this talk, we’ll examine strategies to send the perfect image to every device, ensuring a fast, beautiful rendering of your content. 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.
