About The Book

Join Addy Osmani, your curator, as we dive into a nuanced look at several key topics that will teach you tips and tricks that may help you optimize your own sites. The case studies fall into four major categories that impact almost every project — Performance, Capabilities, Accessibility, and Developer Experience — and the book also includes short interviews with contributors on what additional lessons, challenges, and tips they have to share some time after the case studies were written.

Rather than focusing on conventional project management steps and procedures, Success at Scale is about the ideas and processes that worked (and a few that didn’t), capturing challenges, frustrations, and wins through the eyes of the people who make change happen.
