2020: Performant Videos & I Ching Roles

After 2019’s experiment, I wanted to continue the curious keyboard theme, but integrate more content from a book-writing class I’d been working on.

Switching from background image + music to video allowed for a tour of the site to be embedded in the background, while still improving load speed.

Performance

Performance results were great: by dropping React.js for inline-embedded jQuery Slim, page load dropped to 0.1 seconds, with background video embedded in an iframe loading at 0.3 seconds. Almost twice the speed of last years experiment, with a background video added!
