How long have you been working on improving website performance?

Ever since web sites were invented (circa 1993).

How did you first become interested in making sites faster?

As a graphics programmer in 3d standalone apps I had to be very interested in graphics rendering and optimization. But when I got handed a set of tasks related to optimizing performance on a complex website with many years of, well, "design efforts", it got me very interested in performance optimization for websites.

Introduction

Nick Nagel, UI/UX engineer, Interested in all things related to web engineering but especially computer graphics.
