The Secrets of Web Performance

The Secrets of Web Performance

Wednesday, Aug 28
9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Let's dissect how browsers load, render and handle input on web pages and shine a spotlight on where our performance problems are lurking.

We’re deep-diving at each stage, building an arsenal of solutions to turbocharge our performance. We’ll weigh the pros and cons of each, so we can tailor choices to urgency, scale, tech stack, and budget, ensuring we’re equipped to make commercially-aware decisions for our businesses or clients.

The adventure doesn’t end there – we’re not just fixing issues; we’re future-proofing! Let’s explore the opportunities available using modern architecture and Web Platform APIs to craft websites and web applications that are not just fast but also robust, accessible, and user-friendly.

In this interactive, framework-agnostic workshop — you’ll learn:

  • Why web performance matters and tactics to get buy-in from leaders, decision makers and clients
  • How to identify performance problems early on rather than finding out from your users when regressive updates hit production
  • How the 2024 Core Web Vitals — LCP, CLS and INP — are not just useful for highlighting performance problems but diagnosing where the problems are hiding
  • A deep understanding of how browsers work — a foundation of knowledge that will continue to serve you no matter what the next in-vogue framework is
  • How to holistically and impartially weigh up different techniques to improving performance and prioritise them to suit the unique circumstances of your business or your clients
  • Mitigations to performance-affecting factors that are outside of our control
  • Opportunities to use less JavaScript and have the Web Platform do the work for you
  • Continuing beyond the workshop: how to stay on top of Web Platform advancements in this ever-accelerating industry
