“Performance” with Tim Kadlec and Harry Roberts

After a short Summer break, we are back with new shows. In the first show, two long-time partners in crime and wonderful company on many events around the world, are joining me. Tim Kadlec and Harry Roberts will present a more technical show in the Stay Curious series on a day themed Performance.


Life after Core Web Vitals

Thanks to all the attention on Core Web Vitals, interest in performance is at an all time high. But what happens after all the initial hype has settled down? If we’re optimising for these metrics simply because we’re being told to, then we’ll miss out on an important opportunity to improve performance around the web. In this talk, we’ll talk about how to make sure you’re monitoring meaningful metrics by focusing on a few situations where the current vital metrics don’t quite cut it. We’ll also introduce alternatives that may, in the end, prove to be much more meaningful.

Get Your <head> Straight

Despite being the only section of a website that a user never sees, the <head> is arguably the most important. It is bound to its own unique set of rules and often governs the overall speed of the page. In this talk, we’ll look at some specific caveats, some fascinating intricacies, and — critically — the optimum order for a faster <head>. Find out why your <head> tags are so messy, so vital, and, I promise you, so interesting.
