Nicole Sullivan is a website performance specialist and a former member of Yahoo’s Exceptional Performance Team. She is currently writing a book for O’Reilly with Stoyan Stefanov on performance optimization and she and Stoyan are the creators of Smushit, an engine for crushing images.
Nicole visited Yahoo last week to do an encore of her "Design Fast Websites" talk in which she outlines a set of practical guidelines for building websites that are supremely fast and visually rich. Her advice is to know your craft, to engage your designers, and to make sure that your collaboration with designers works intelligently in the service of users. She was kind enough to let us record the talk and share it with you here on YUI Theater.
