I read a very interesting article today on how to be a good front-end web developer, and make your pages load faster. I don’t like to make other people read pages and pages, so here’s 4 tips I thought is the most important take away for me:

  • Put stylesheets at the top of a document
  • Put JavaScript at the bottom (where possible)
  • Make as few HTTP requests as possible
  • Serving assets from multiple domains can increase the number of assets a browser can download in parallel

The article is very good, but could have been a bit more condensed I feel. If you are interested, I recommend giving it a read here.
