Most of the time spent generating an HTML page is spent on a few personalized parts, and pages are only sent to the client after everything is rendered. Luckily, Drupal 8’s improved architecture allows for BigPipe-style rendering, which makes it possible to make the majority of a page available for interaction while Drupal generates the personalized parts. Watch this on-demand webinar to learn the ideas behind BigPipe, how to make your code BigPipe-compatible, and more.
