Note: This pre-event full day workshop runs from 10am to 4pm on Wed October 9 and requires a separate WORKSHOP ticket to attend.

A lot of things can make a website slow, and every website is different, but one thing remains constant—the way you solve the problem. In this workshop, Harry will take a look at attitudes, approaches, tooling, and workflows to help you think like a performance engineer. Whether you’re debugging TTFB or layout shifts, LCP, or memory leaks, knowing how to approach the problem is the most important step you can take.

With Harry’s guidance, you’ll learn how to set up your DevTools for forensic analysis, explore tools for detecting early warning signs, configure the most accurate and effective test environments, run tests behind cookie banners or
logins, achieve more accurate throttling and network conditions, and a whole lot more.

Then, armed with the most complete toolkit to date, you’ll dive in and start making _your_ sites faster. The afternoon will be spent sharing and debugging real issues on real projects. Collaboratively, you’ll take all this new
knowledge and use it to assess and audit your own sites!

Throughout the whole session, the floor will be open to any and all questions regarding web performance, so get ready for a lot of deep and varied off-topic discussions, too!
