Building a good mobile website, spanning different devices, platforms and contexts, is a difficult task. And also making that website FAST is even harder. Performance is often overlooked as designers and developers focus on layout and functionality, often resulting with slow and heavy mobile sites.
In this presentation we'll review the top design philosophies for building a mobile website. We'll briefly explain each, and dig into the primary performance implications it carries. We'll show real world examples, explain what they did wrong, and talk about how you can avoid these problems on your own site.
