As a designer and theme expert for almost the past decade, I have seen many iterations of how our industry goes about creating a theme. The one constant for designers and theme developers is the use of CSS (Cascading Style Sheets).

I am embarking on a nine-day, 1500-mile bike ride in early April 2014. My first thought was, “Am I fit enough for this?” That was immediately followed by, “HOW do I prepare for this?” As I began the process of planning and scheduling, I realized that preparing for this event isn’t so different than the work I do every day as a QA and Project Manager with Unleashed Technologies.

Are you looking for some actionable CSS performance tips that will help you to boost website speed without sacrificing aesthetics?
