It's performance meetup time again! We will continue to focus on images. Last time we saw that images affect page loading performance and how to use the picture element to provide the most suitable image depending on browser.
Jose Perez will talk about some different techniques used in well known websites to load images with a performance mindset. He will explain different ways to do lazy loading of images and transitions from placeholders to the final image. Besides, he will explain what has worked and what hasn't applying them to Spotify's website.
Jose is a web developer at Spotify working on their most trafficked websites open.spotify.com and Spotify's web player. Before that he developed a deep interest on web performance optimization while working in a Spanish social network building their mobile site, supporting all kind of devices from portable video consoles (Nintendo DS, Nintendo DSi, PlayStation Portable) to TVs. He tweets at @jmperezperez.
Host this time is Expressen and we will be at Kungsvalvet.
Jose will start 18:00 and the doors open at 17:30. After we will have Open Space (prepare topics you wanna talk about!) and have time to get to know each other :)
