The Cost Of JavaScript

As the world build sites that are more heavily reliant on JavaScript, we sometimes pay for what we send down in ways that we can’t always easily see.

Addy also shares tips for fixing JavaScript performance issues so everything loads quicker. A little discipline can help if you want your site to load and be interactive as soon as possible on mobile.

    We are back a whole circle. Before, it was aggressive bundling, now it's code splitting. 😂
