Move Fast & Don’t Break Things

Wed, 16th – 3:00 PM

Performance is a high priority for any site of scale today, but it can be easier to make a site fast than to keep it that way. As a site's features and design evolves, its performance is often threatened for a number of reasons, making it hard to ensure fast, resilient access to services.

In this session, Scott will draw from real-world examples where business goals and other priorities have conflicted with page performance, and share some strategies and practices that have helped major sites overcome those challenges to defend their speed without compromises.
