Performance Budgets, Pragmatically

CSS Wizardry

One of the key tools that performance engineers have at their disposal is the Performance Budget: it helps us—or, more importantly, our clients—ensure that any performance-focused work is monitored and maintained after we’ve gone. Example Performance Budgets.

The Future of Performance Testing

Alex Podelko

While there are still quite a lot of cases where it is still applicable, it needs to evolve into more sophisticated processes tightly integrated with development and other parts of performance engineering. First of all, integrating into agile development (shift-left / continuous performance testing) and integrating into performance information loop with production (shift-right) to form a holistic performance view.

CSS and Network Performance

CSS Wizardry

Let me address that by combining my two favourite topics: CSS and performance.
