Rails has one of the most collaborative environments in the tech world, and that is the main reasons why we're such great fans. Aligned with our objective of contributing to the Rails community, we decided that RailsConf would be the perfect environment to share our input, as it's one of the world's greatest Ruby on Rails events.
Almost 50% of your website's load time is spent loading images. There's a simple way to decrease it, and this is what this talk is about. We'll delve into the best options for web images that significantly reduce website size without compromising quality, and learn how using next-gen images can significantly impact website loading times, user conversion, and SEO. Our discussion covers the challenges that arise while integrating next-gen images into a Rails project. Also a new gem that streamlines the process of using WebP images with Ruby on Rails was presented.
