Designing for Performance
©2014, published by O'Reilly
Designing for Performance is a practical introduction to performance from a designer and front-end developer perspective. It covers performance as part of the overall user experience, how to measure the speed of your site, how to weigh aesthetics versus speed as you build or iterate on designs, and how to change the culture of your organization to care about performance.
The book is available to read for free at designingforperformance.com, but I'm also donating all of the proceeds from book purchases to various charities focused on supporting underrepresented people in tech, including Girl Develop It, Women Who Code, Black Girls Code, #YesWeCode, Latinas in STEM, Hack the Hood, and DonorsChoose projects like Growing "Girls with Gadgets"! and Girls Can Code, Too!.
