Ariya and I have very different backgrounds — geographically and professionally — but we are very like-minded. For example, we share the opinion that web development is a mess, it could be much better, and we like to find and suggest improvements for how we make software for the web. In essence, Ariya and I are best practices geeks.
We’re interested in web performance, but also maintainability, developer velocity and happiness. We want better lives for web developers. How do we make that happen? We find, make, and offer tools.
The presentation is distilled from one that Ariya has been giving for a while — a talk full of value and possibilities. This is our culling and organization of that content — I hope we’ve made it more palatable and practical.
