Diagnosing The Patient
For the last 2 years, I’ve run Dev Empathy Book Club, and the site hasn’t changed much. I’ve tried to keep it low-effort so I can focus on the community and the content we’re producing. One casualty of this was that the site, while simple, wasn’t very performant. (Google’s PageSpeed Insights gave it a very low score of 30/100 on mobile.)
I recently began working at Cloudinary, and I realized it’s pretty embarrassing that, as an employee of a company whose product is all about optimizing media on the web, I have a personal site that does a terrible job of it.
