Web Performance Behind the Scenes

There’s more to Web Performance than just a simple score from your browser analysis; you can learn what’s going on behind the #webperf rules we know.

My objective in this session is to review the core principles guiding the modern #webperf trends and expand on them. I’ll share some deeper perspectives on how to solve performance problems beyond the simple things a web developer might do. We’ll dig into the technical elements and architectural implications and develop your robust understanding of web performance beyond the basics.
