2. Optimize images: Large image files can slow down a website's load time. In my last role, I used tools like ImageOptim and TinyPNG to compress images without losing quality.
3. Enable browser caching: By enabling browser caching, we can store static resources in the user's browser, so they don't have to be re-downloaded on subsequent visits. This helps me improve the load time for returning visitors.
4. Use a Content Delivery Network (CDN): A CDN can distribute static resources across multiple servers, reducing the load on the main server and improving load times for users worldwide. In my previous projects, I've had success using services like Cloudflare and AWS CloudFront.
5. Implement lazy loading: Lazy loading defers the loading of non-critical resources until they're needed, which can improve the initial load time. I worked on a project where we used Intersection Observer API to achieve this.
