With Early Release ebooks, you get books in their earliest form—the author's raw and unedited content as he or she writes—so you can take advantage of these technologies long before the official release of these titles. You'll also receive updates when significant changes are made, new chapters as they're written, and the final ebook bundle.

Responsive Web Design (RWD) requires a more abstract way of responding to a user's behavior and environment. There’s a delicate balance between designing for a user's context and insuring that the performance of the design is not weighed down by special elements.

High Performance Responsive Design is the first book to approach RWD with performance in mind. Author Tom Barker, a software engineer, solutions architect, and technical manager, shows you how to create website designs that are both high performing and compelling for the context of the user.

RWD’s dirty secret today is how bloated everyone’s implementations are. Many developers are loading sites full of the styles, images, and JavaScript for all of their break points—and designers are starting to complain about RWD’s performance implications. This book will help you build a site that reaches top performance on all platforms.
