“[Web] Performance is a lot like plumbing. It’s hard to get people to pay attention to it until something is wrong.” — Tim Kadlec
Performance is an often invisible part of our online experience. As Tim Kadlec notes, most people don’t notice it until something’s wrong. Performance is, in fact, the cornerstone of any successful user experience.
Just Map It
Before joining AREA 17 two years ago I spent a year and a half trying to get my startup, justmap.it, off the ground. I wanted to create a simple app where people could log and share places. And while it’s been a grind, I’ve pushed forward and will be releasing a new, much more polished version soon. Maps and places continue to intrigue me and seem to always find a way into all of my work.
