Café with Mark Finkle from Tumblr, on real-user monitoring, optimal performance standards, and lite versions

This week we had the pleasure of having Mark Finkle from Tumblr with us, sharing his holistic view on performance approach, and the relevance of framing it from a UX standpoint. That’s why real-user monitoring (RUM) is fundamental to understand what users are experiencing.

Mark then takes us to some performance challenges he has seen at Tumblr and shares a few techniques they are using, for example playing with image and GIF formats for optimal performance. Finally, Mark shares a superb idea on how to use the efforts to build a lite version to improve the original app itself. Hope you enjoy the conversation as much as we did!
