Welcome to my 10 part series of posts on how I improved the performance of my website, in this post I will be covering a table of contents on what to expect. As well as this I will be providing a list of tests that I have carried out to show a comparison at the end in what has transpired.
In summary, this web page acts as a front page and table of contents for what should be an interesting series of posts (if you are interested in network performance). I will be aiming to minimise the number of requests made by my website and reduce the file size of any requests that execute.
