    Know When To CDN

    There’s no doubt that JavaScript, CSS, images and other resources are becoming larger and larger and HUGELY McHUGENATOR sized these days (just take a look at any popular website you visit!).

The list of checkboxes and drop-down lists can be a little overwhelming at first and it may not look like they matter, since your project will work if you just accept the defaults. But each of these options does matter, depending on the type of project you’re building and how you want the project setup.
