When I heard that the dynamic duo Thomas Fuchs and Amy Hoy were writing a book I wanted to check it out.
They have released a beta version, which is pretty much code complete, with just some copy and illustration tweaks to come ($24).
The book is actually a bit of a two in one, as not only do you get some great content (see below) but you also get a very nice tool called DOM Monster.
First, the content:
You will see that the book is split into the world of loadtime and runtime, with content including:
- Script load order
- Inlining and precaching
- Compressing, minification
- Using multiple hosts
And other items such as iPhone tips, and how to measure all of this.
Then here we have the DOM monster, a bookmarklet that puts together lessons learned from the book and analyzes your page:
Very cool indeed. Nice to see a book from a pragmatic practitioner like these two.
