"At trivago, we are using Memcached mostly as our caching layer. We have a cache interface that “hides” the logic, so we (the developers) don’t have to think much about its implementation just to know how the interface works."
"Image compression is a biiiig subject, and we certainly haven’t covered every aspect of it here, but having discovered our preferred compression methods across each file type, these are the new guidelines for image compression at Kyan"
"Image placeholders in SVG are ready for prime time thanks to browser support and good rendering performance. By automating SVG shape creation that mimics main features visible inside an image and compressing the result appropriately, we can achieve SVG-based image placeholders weighing in at only ~400 bytes. SQIP is a tool to make this process easy to integrate into your deployments."
"Using Low Quality Image Placeholders (LQIP) ensures that your users are presented with a usable page much faster. When combined with a lazy loading technique using Intersection Observer, your users save on bandwidth too. It has been fun to experiment with LQIP!"
