The Performance and Usability of Font Loading—Velocity Santa Clara

May 28, 2015 Watch in 39 minutes 🇺🇸 USA

My beautiful daughter was born exactly 26 days before the Velocity Conference. The other parents in my life warned me what having a new child would be like—you live your life in one hour increments between feedings, twenty four hours a day. I did not heed their warnings and used many of those sleep-deprived increments to make a brand new presentation on Web Fonts for Velocity.

Thank You

A huge thanks to Steve Souders for goading me into submitting a proposal to the conference—I had a great time. It was amazing to finally meet Steve in person as well as Katie Kovalcin and Bruce Lawson, people I had only known previously through the magic of the Internet.
