Today, a staggering 64% of all web traffic (62% on mobile) is image content. It therefore comes as no surprise that image optimization is the number one feature request by Fastly customers. The reason for this is very simple – Image optimization and delivery come with many pain points. It can be tediously repetitive, error-prone and, due to the many moving parts of a typical image pipeline, be expensive to self-host, support and scale.
In this workshop at Altitude NYC, we discussed the many advantages of image optimization, discussed use cases with Nordstromrack.com | Hautelook, and showed a few advanced options.
