Must-see talk: "Fast and resilient web apps: Tools and techniques" talk by Ilya Grigorik at Google I/O 2016.

- Fast devices are often slow
- Fast networks are often slow
- Random stuff makes everything slow sometimes
You need to make it fast and resilient.
resilience = ability to maintain an acceptable level of service in the face of faults and challenges to normal operation
