The Facebook Engineering Team on how they’ve built the new Facebook.com – a version which I’ve been able to try for nearly two months by now.
Throughout the process, we anchored our work around two technical mantras:
- As little as possible, as early as possible. We should deliver only the resources we need, and we should strive to have them arrive right before we need them.
- Engineering experience in service of user experience. The end goal of our development is all about the people using our website. As we think about the UX challenges on our site, we can adapt the experience to guide engineers to do the right thing by default.
