Thanks for checking out my site! I'm Rick. (That's me to the right). I'm a web developer at YouTube focusing on web performance and front end infrastructure. When I'm not coding or exhausting my Netflix queue, I enjoy evangelizing the magic of web performance.
I blog regularly about web performance and front end engineering and I'm the creator of two open source projects: trunk8 (an intelligent text truncation plugin to jQuery that cuts off text based on pixel width, not character count), and red dwarf (a Google Maps heatmap of GitHub repository stars). I'm also writing a book!
