CSS and Network Performance

CSS Wizardry

Despite having been called CSS Wizardry for over a decade now, there hasn’t been a great deal of CSS-related content on this site for a while. Let me address that by combining my two favourite topics: CSS and performance. CSS is critical to rendering a page—a browser will not begin rendering until all CSS has been found, downloaded, and parsed—so it is imperative that we get it onto a user’s device as fast as we possibly can.

We’ve been working pretty hard on making their suite of online products much faster , and I’ve been the technical consultant leading the project. It’s been an incredibly fun and rewarding engagement, and we’ve made some real business- and customer-facing improvements. One of the key reasons I’ve found the project so fun is that it’s given me a real chance to get very forensic.

Fostering a Web Performance Culture

Jos

presented in Google IO 2018 ( source ) These tools make it easier to determine where we need to put emphasis to improve our sites. Web Performance is not only about understanding what makes a site fast. It’s about creating awareness amongst both developers and non-developers. Performance is a feature and needs to be prioritized as such. Performance is a topic that has interested me for a long time.

The Three Types of Performance Testing

CSS Wizardry

A lot of companies—even if they are aware that performance is key to their business—are often unsure of how, when, or where performance testing sits within their development lifecycle. To make things worse, they’re also usually unsure whose responsibility performance measuring and monitoring is. The short answers are, of course ‘all the time’ and ‘everyone’, but this mutual disownership is a common reason why performance often gets overlooked.

What do you believe now that you didn't five years ago? Centralized wins. Decentralized loses.

High Scalability

We do have new decentalized services : Bitcoin(2009), Minecraft(2009), Ethereum(2104), IPFS(2015), Mastadon(2016), and PeerTube(2018). Decentralized systems will continue to lose to centralized systems until there's a driver requiring decentralization to deliver a clearly superior consumer experience. Unfortunately, that may not happen for quite some time. I say unfortunately because ten years ago, even five years ago, I still believed decentralization would win.

Auth0 Architecture: Running In Multiple Cloud Providers And Regions

Auth0 provides authentication, authorization, and single sign-on services for apps of any type (mobile, web, native) on any stack. Authentication is critical for the vast majority of apps. We designed Auth0 from the beginning so that it could run anywhere: on our cloud, on your cloud, or even on your own private infrastructure.

How do you explain the unreasonable effectiveness of cloud security?

High Scalability

With the enormous attack surface of cloud providers like AWS, Azure, and GCP, why aren't there more security problems? Data breaches and cyber attacks occur daily. How do you explain the unreasonable effectiveness of cloud security? Google has an ebook on their security approach; Microsoft has some web pages. Both are the equivalent of that person who is disgustingly healthy and you ask them how they do it and they say "I don't know. I just eat right, exercise, and get plenty of sleep."

What If?

CSS Wizardry

I was recently conducting some exploratory work for a potential client when I hit upon a pretty severe flaw in a design decision they’d made: They’d built a responsive image lazyloader in JavaScript which, by design, worked by: immediately applying display: none; to the ; waiting until the very last of the page’s images had arrived; once they’d arrived, removing the display: none; and gradually fading the page into visibility.
