The video of my Google IO about "How AMP achieves its speed" was just posted on YouTube.

The video of my Google IO about "How AMP achieves its speed" was just posted on YouTube. The talk contains some numbers as to what actual performance we see in the wild (spoiler: better than 1 second median load time without pre-rendering). My main goal was to show that AMP is just web-tech and most optimization techniques can be applied to non-AMP sites.

AMP is about more than just raw load performance, though. With features such as pre-rendering and swiping between search results we are pushing what is possible in terms of UX on the web and with native-web integrations. These new features require cooperation between web pages and the embedding apps (which AMP implements) and while we are just getting started, I'm super excited about the new possibilities this opens up.
