How to increase web app performance better

Some of developers met many problems before, during and after development web application. One of problems that they met after development web application is their web application bad performance. There are a few methods to increase web app performance better is listed below:

1. Application Cache

What is Application Cache?
HTML5 introduces application cache, which means that a web application is cached, and accessible without an internet connection.

Application cache gives an application three advantages:

Offline browsing - users can use the application when they're offline
Speed - cached resources load faster
Reduced server load - the browser will only download updated/changed resources from the server

<html manifest="minify.appcache">

CACHE MANIFEST (this one is required as it say that file is a cache)

How The Mobile Affected The Way We Do Business

The pre-iPhone smartphones might not have been that smart, but the idea of checking e-mail from a mobile phone has always been promising. Now we have powerful productivity tools in our pockets, countless services in the mobile ecosystem, and the whole world is just a touch away from us. These things seem like great conditions for doing business, and it's really so. The mobile has irreversibly affected business in general. We can say there's more good than bad to it, but anyway, how did it exactly happen?

Quick To Rise, Quick To Fall

Not so long ago it could take a lot of time to start and build a prosperous business. It used to take lots of extra efforts to make it grow on the international area. Now it may take as little time as possible for a startup to make or break. Businesses now have a foothold called mobile marketing, which reaches out for potential clientele around the world. Now everything is sped up. Every personal mania of being super-productive pushes the whole business ahead.

Welcome To The Cloud

Modern business is all about the cloud, which saves lots of time, and also contributes to the fast pace of growing. Cloud-dependent mobile apps and devices, centralized data storing and task management, instant access from anywhere on Earth - various functions and opportunities given by the cloud are an absolute must. Once distance was an insurmountable obstacle for business, now outsourcing is transparent and efficient, locating your employees has never been easier, and everything can be tracked, if your business has the right tools for that. And the tools, such as Microsoft's Office 365, are provided as services for monthly fees. Such solutions lay all the technical issues upon the shoulders of service providers, which again means convenience for businesses.

Expectations Have Changed

Speeding up couldn't leave client and employer expectations unchanged. When there was no mobile worldwide connectivity, waiting was a norm. Now in the business world, waiting for an answer concerning an urgent matter for more than an hour is unheard of. We also shouldn't forget that many people have to solve business problems during their free time, since we are constantly connected to the Internet (read: connected to work). This means many employees (especially those who occupy high positions) are expected to answer an urgent call, being at home or on a vacation.

Apart from the companies' internal relations, there are client expectations, which are nonetheless important and must be treated in a different way, not like it used to be. Your clients want your response immediately. What they want, must be there in a while. On the other hand, adhering to the rule of being quick to respond is rewarding for any business or any singled out professional.

Bring Your Own Device

Unlike PCs, mobile devices are very personal items, and it's much more convenient for each of us to use our own device for business purposes. The BYOD issue has been discussed numerous times, along with its security risks. But thought-out use, along with mobile devices and platforms getting more secure, actually works. There is encryption in secure communication means and remote wipe software for that.

The Thin Line Between Home And Work

Once everything was simple: there was home, which meant family and friends, and there was work, which meant colleagues and clients. Now the line between is becoming thinner and blurred out, since our life is easily tracked on social networks. Our personal information and photos on Facebook and Google+, our tweets and posts can be easily read by our employers or clients. Not everyone dares stick to the 'be yourself' principle, and many people try to look professional at all times.

The mobile hasn't touched just the business aspect, it has completely reorganized our daily routine, and our lives in general. For businesses these changes are largely positive, but for every individual, from an ordinary employee to a CEO, some of them may be rather tiring. These are just five directions out of the massive wind of change brought by mobile technologies, and if your business manages to incorporate high efficiency and employee satisfaction, it's done right.

What’s the best mobile solution for you?

By comparing the content that your users are accessing via desktop, mobile, and tablet, you'll gain insights into which implementation will best suit your business. In today’s post, we’ll look at the three most common ways of doing this. We’ll explore building a responsively designed site, dynamic serving solutions, and lastly, a separate mobile site.

1.Responsive Web Design (RWD):
A responsively built site automatically rearranges and resizes content to fit the screen of any device used to access the site.

2.Dynamic Serving of Content:
Another solution is to dynamically serve content. Similar to RWD, with this approach the web server detects the type of device the visitor is using and presents a custom page on the same URL.

3.Separate Mobile Site:
The final implementation you might want to consider is creating a separate mobile site, where smartphone users will be directed to a mobile-optimized version of your site.

12 Great Motivational Quotes for 2014

This set of inspirational thoughts will help you stay motivated throughout the new year.

At the start of every year, I create a list of quotes to guide and inspire me for the next 12 months.  Here are the quotes I've selected for 2014:
  • "A gem cannot be polished without friction, nor a man perfected without trials."
  • "Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first."
    Mark Twain
  • "Enthusiasm, backed up by horse sense and persistence, is the quality that most frequently makes for success."
    Dale Carnegie
  • "It doesn't matter whether the Dow is 5000 or 50,000. If you're an entrepreneur, there is no bad time to start a company."
    Guy Kawasaki
  • "Opportunities to find deeper powers within ourselves come when life seems most challenging."
    Joseph Campbell
  • "The problem with competition is that it takes away the requirement to set your own path, to invent your own method, to find a new way."
    Seth Godin
  • "You are your greatest asset. Put your time, effort and money into training, grooming, and encouraging your greatest asset."
    Tom Hopkins
  • "It is only necessary to have courage, for strength without self-confidence is useless."
  • "If money is your hope for independence you will never have it. The only real security that a man will have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience, and ability."
    Henry Ford
  • "People who are unable to motivate themselves must be content with mediocrity, no matter how impressive their other talents."
    Andrew Carnegie
  • "If you have no confidence in self, you are twice defeated in the race of life. With confidence, you have won even before you have started."
  • "It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change."
    Charles Darwin

8 Things You Should Not Do Every Day

If you get decent value from making to-do lists, you'll get huge returns--in productivity, in improved relationships, and in your personal well-being--from adding these items to your not to-do list:
Every day, make the commitment not to:
1. Check my phone while I'm talking to someone.
You've done it. You've played the, "Is that your phone? Oh, it must be mine," game. You've tried the you-think-sly-but-actually-really-obvious downwards glance. You've done the, "Wait, let me answer this text..." thing.
Maybe you didn't even say, "Wait." You just stopped talking, stopped paying attention, and did it.
Want to stand out? Want to be that person everyone loves because they make you feel, when they're talking to you, like you're the most important person in the world?
Stop checking your phone. It doesn't notice when you aren't paying attention.
Other people? They notice.
And they care.
2. Multitask during a meeting.
The easiest way to be the smartest person in the room is to be the person who pays the most attention to the room.
You'll be amazed by what you can learn, both about the topic of the meeting and about the people in the meeting if you stop multitasking and start paying close attention. You'll flush out and understand hidden agendas, you'll spot opportunities to build bridges, and you'll find ways to make yourself indispensable to the people who matter.
It's easy, because you'll be the only one trying.
And you'll be the only one succeeding on multiple levels.
3. Think about people who don't make any difference in my life.
Trust me: The inhabitants of planet Kardashian are okay without you.
But your family, your friends, your employees--all the people that really matter to you--are not. Give them your time and attention.
They're the ones who deserve it.
4. Use multiple notifications.
You don't need to know the instant you get an email. Or a text. Or a tweet. Or anything else that pops up on your phone or computer.
If something is important enough for you to do, it's important enough for you to do without interruptions. Focus totally on what you're doing. Then, on a schedule you set--instead of a schedule you let everyone else set--play prairie dog and pop your head up to see what's happening.
And then get right back to work. Focusing on what you are doing is a lot more important than focusing on other people might be doing.
They can wait. You, and what is truly important to you, cannot.
5. Let the past dictate the future.
Mistakes are valuable. Learn from them.
Then let them go.
Easier said than done? It all depends on your perspective. When something goes wrong, turn it into an opportunity to learn something you didn't know--especially about yourself.
When something goes wrong for someone else, turn it into an opportunity to be gracious, forgiving, and understanding.
The past is just training. The past should definitely inform but in no way define you--unless you let it.
6. Wait until I'm sure I will succeed.
You can never feel sure you will succeed at something new, but you can always feel sure you are committed to giving something your best.
And you can always feel sure you will try again if you fail.
Stop waiting. You have a lot less to lose than you think, and everything to gain.
7. Talk behind someone's back.
If only because being the focus of gossip sucks. (And so do the people who gossip.)
If you've talked to more than one person about something Joe is doing, wouldn't everyone be better off if you stepped up and actually talked to Joe about it? And if it's "not your place" to talk to Joe, it's probably not your place to talk about Joe.
Spend your time on productive conversations. You'll get a lot more done--and you'll gain a lot more respect.
8. Say "yes" when I really mean "no."
Refusing a request from colleagues, customers, or even friends is really hard. But rarely does saying no go as badly as you expect. Most people will understand, and if they don't, should you care too much about what they think?
When you say no, at least you'll only feel bad for a few moments. When you say yes to something you really don't want to do you might feel bad for a long time--or at least as long as it takes you to do what you didn't want to do in the first place.
