Front-End Performance: Building Faster Websites With Harry Roberts

Wednesday, November 20, 2019.

It’s good for users, it’s good for accessibility, and it’s good for business. But why are modern browsing experiences so slow? If technology is getting better, why are websites getting slower?

In this workshop, we’ll take an in-depth look at:

What skills do you need?

This workshop is targeted at intermediate to advanced front-end developers, web designers, and software engineers, or anybody who writes code. There will be resources and case studies for you to take back to non-technical stakeholders to help convince them of the power of performance.

What hardware/software do you need?

You will need a laptop, and something for making a lot of notes.
