Yesterday, in a fit of inspiration, I decided to add a live feed of Google I/O to the dev.to home page.
I would love this platform to be the destination for discovery and discussion of what is going on, even more so than it currently is, and this was an experiment of sorts.

But it's never that simple
The site became janky. Jank is when the browser's frame rate drops below the accepted threshold of about 60fps and things get glitchy weird. The browser's framerate, and other tools used to debug this sort of stuff can be found in Chrome's dev tools. Other browsers have similar setups.
