Uglifying in Public: Website Design for Speed, Accessibility, and Staff Delight

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Uglifying, minifying, bootstrapping, prototyping, and guerilla testing: these are a few of the techniques we’ve used at the University of Minnesota Libraries to redesign our website. We redesigned our site to be responsive (so it works well on phones, tablets, desktops, etc.), to match our new discovery system, to improve accessibility, to significantly reduce page size and increase page speed, and we think we've done it without angering our users (or more remarkably, our staff).  Join us for a discussion about why website speed matters and how prototyping in public helped us meet our redesign goals.
