Performance and Responsive Web Design (2013)
Updated: There is a newer version of this presentation available.
The presentation was originally given to NebraskaJS in November of 2012. Unfortunately due to my own technical ineptitude with screen recording software I wasn’t able to publish the talk. So when I was asked to present on the topic again at the Omaha Mobile Group, I thought it would be a good opportunity to update the talk and get a second chance at recording it in front of an audience.
