Use WURFL Device Detection With NGINX for Mobile-Optimized Website, Faster Loading Images

Here is a great video of our Founder and CTO Luca Passani speaking at NGINX Conf 2017. Luca gives a quick overview of how to use WURFL InFuze Device Detection with NGINX  to develop a mobile-optimized website.

He then dives into the problem that images pose. Today, the average webpage is over 2 MB, and 64% of that is images. This payload is too large for mobile devices, and the result is slow page loading. There are many approaches to solving the problem, but one of the most elegant is ImageEngine. It combines WURFL Device Detection, Image Optimization, and Smart CDN service all in one package. Usually, it can reduce payload and time to load by 60%. And since you only pay for the optimized payload – we call this Smart Bytes – you will save money versus you existing CDN.
