Chrome Dev Summit 2018 was a huge success! In this recap, Timothy Jordan reports on the top 5 announcements from Chrome Dev Summit.
1. Performance budgets and updates to speed tooling
It can be very challenging to build complex web applications and keep them fast, fluid and lightweight. But there are tools and techniques available now that can help. Squoosh.app is a demo app that showcases techniques and technology available that can help make a complex experience smooth.
Moving away from providing guidance through walls of text, we’ve taken the approach of short, snappy guides providing support for developers.
4. Project vis bug
Project vis bug is a new Chrome extension thinking about design on the web.
5. Closer collaboration with Web Frameworks
Frameworks made a lot of important performance improvements in 2018 - amplify their impact by helping design various APIs - including the Scheduling API - offering 200k in funding for improving performance best practices in frameworks
