Hi. I am Pothi Kalimuthu, from Srivilliputhur, TamilNadu, India. I am passionate about (web) performance.
My passion for speed and performance started when I can not afford to pay for the latest hardware. The cost of any latest gadget here in India is usually much higher compared to the cost in Europe or in North America. I usually buy hardware that are at least two years old and try to make it run as smooth as possible by applying various techniques. This also let me to opt for Linux instead of Windows OS since the beginning. Linux, by default, is optimised to run on most hardware. Heard of Raspberry PI or IoT? Most use Linux. In early days, I optimised servers (and desktops). Now, I optimise sites that are hosted in (Linux) servers. I can’t afford to see a slow site just because my internet speed is slow. :) My internet connection speed hasn’t gone beyond 2 Mbps during the last few years. On the other side of the world, people talk about Gigabyte internet, though. That’s how my (perf) journey started. It doesn’t seem to end any time soon! 🚀 🚀 🚀 🚀 🚀
