Why Take This Course

Demystifying the browser's rendering pipeline will make it easy for you to build high performance web apps. By following a few simple principles, you'll be capable of drastically reducing the browser's workload and time needed to render each frame.

You'll start by getting introduce to the individual steps of the rendering pipeline, beginning with parsing HTML and ending with painting pixels on the screen. Then you'll quickly dive into tooling with ample opportunities to practice profiling and debugging apps with Chrome Developer Tools.

The final project uses the Hacker News API and gives you an opportunity to show off everything you've learned as you turn an awful experience into a high performance web app!
