Fast and resilient web apps

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

Fast is nog enough

Everything breaks eventually

  • 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
