Case Study How we reached 100%
Google Page Speed Score

For Our Client platformOS

At the end of April 2019, Adam Broadway from platformOS reached out to us to help his team with the front-end coding of the home and inner pages of their Documentation site.

PlatformOS is a limitless model-based API-driven development platform, to build marketplaces, CRM, CMS and any SaaS business solutions with Enterprise Grade DevOps infrastructure provided ‘out of the box’.

Having completed a successful front-end project with them in 2018, we were happy to see them coming back to us.

PlatformOS came with their own designs, so it was just the front-end development that they needed done.

However, they had an important ask for us. They wanted us to keep their outstanding Page Speed Score intact on the new pages:

"And as you will see from Google Page Speed, we have 98/100 for Mobile and 100/100 for Desktop. If you're able to keep the code as performant and clean as possible, that would be great."

Approach Taken

Nate, one of our senior project managers, took on the task and his team did not miss to deliver. The project was scheduled for delivery within 6 days and required the following techniques and technologies:

    • Retina Displays Optimization
    • HTML5 / CSS
    • BEM Methodology
    • Bootstrap 4
    • SASS
    • Jarvis WebPack Template
    • SSI (Server Side Includes)
    • BrowserSyncs
    • Commented Markup
    • Custom Fonts
    • Rollovers/Hovers
    • CSS Transitions
    • CSS Sprites

When building a website where PageSpeed is essential, we’re guided by the best industry practices to hit the highest possible PageSpeed score - enable compression, minify HTML, CSS and JavaScript, reduce redirects, etc.

As previously agreed, on May 6th, Nate sent back the coded pages.

Results

A few days later Adam messaged us back that they have integrated the newly coded pages into a test site and that the PageSpeed score stays intact.

A couple of days later they deployed them to production.

Here is what Adam and Nate have to
say about their collaboration on the
platformOS project

Adam Broadway

CEO, platformOS
htmlBurger client since 2018

“High scores in Google Page Speed (lighthouse tests) are critical to our website credibility and SEO.

Having worked with the HTMLBurger team previously, we were confident that Nate and the team would be able to ensure they used best-practice front-end coding standards and the results speak for themselves.

The high-quality code was also met with excellence in project management and communication with my team.

We’re looking forward to sending A LOT more work their way and continuing a long-term partnership.“

Nate

Lead Project Manager

" It's always exciting to see a project coming from Adam and his team.

After reviewing the project's specifications I knew that a perfect score was what Adam was looking for.

The project discussion went very smooth and we managed to clear all details with just a few emails. The guys behind platformOS are very competent and they know what they are doing.

I'm happy that we got the chance to share experience and work together. I’m looking forward to be working with Adam and his team again."
