Make the Web Faster!
Sunday, January 15, 2023 - 8:00 PM UTC, for 2 hours.
AT THAT (In-Person Only) Workshop (pre-conference)
Room: Campsite 3
This session demonstrates practical techniques that drop a web page's size from almost 3MB to 143K, and load time from 4 seconds to less than a second, while looking the same! Review tools that validate and describe performance best practices. Explore how to defer resource requests, load resources asynchronously, and prefetch critical resources. Many other performance improvements will be discussed, which can reduce response time while also boosting the scalability and reliability of your site. Learn the techniques that can have the largest impact on web performance with the least amount of work. Use webpagetest.org, Fiddler, and Lighthouse to measure your web site and find the best opportunities for improvement!
Workshop will cover metrics, measurements, tools, and techniques to improve performance. Participants will measure the current performance of their publicly accessible web site, then use tools to find potential performance improvements. Those interested can provide a URL for the group to review live to see the performance review process in action to identify additional opportunities. You will leave with an initial set of measurements for your site, and a list of ideas for improving your site’s performance. When you implement the suggestions, you’ll know how to measure again and show your boss what you did!
