Compression: slashing the bytes for faster web apps

We all know that compression is essential for delivering fast web apps. But how does it work? Is it just ✨magic✨?

We’ll take a look at how compression shaves bytes off your downloads under the hood, and at what impact this can make on your page load time. Then we’ll see how we can use JavaScript to compress your *uploads* too, turbo charging your SPA in poor network conditions.

We make events for the professionals shaping Australia's digital future
