Know Your Media!

About the project

Know your Media is a project built by @tpiros, and its purpose is to educate developers on using media within web applications.

Often the importance and the impact of media on the web is overlooked. Sometimes it's due to the lack of knowledge and understanding about how to handle media. Sometimes it's because there's not enough information out there about the options and the tools that can be used.

This site intends to offer a solution for two things: display the drawbacks of using and mishandling media while also providing a few tools for media optimisation.

It is my intention to extend this site with additional information and try to grow it into a handy resource that developers can use to learn from and refer to.
