Why We Need Minification
When Coders and Programmers are working on their code it often times is much easier to read for humans with spaces and comments about sections of code. Computers do not need any of these spaces or comments and therefore can process the data much quicker without them.
How Minification Works
For WordPress users, there are plugins that provide a function that strips out all of the unneeded spaces. Essentially, all the work is done behind the scenes and takes little time to implement.
