Re: Lazy Devs

Think I'm the last of a dying breed...

Second to last. The front page for my company's website weighs in at 74KB. And 10KB of that is CSS that I really do need to trim down.

The laziness of web developers isn't a new thing, and it isn't a new trend in development in general either. 95% of developers have always been lazy. Most just don't understand the concepts of optimisation, the rest don't care. I've always been pushing others to think about what the consequences of their choice of algorithm or implementation might be. Minimising network traffic is no different to maximising cache usage, fully utilising all those cores, minimising memory fragmentation, or reducing pipeline stalls.
