06 Oct 2021 Diving into Dev Tools for performance
Performance is important. Tooling can be hard. Do flame charts and waterfalls intimidate you? Come learn how to use common performance tools such as Chrome DevTools, Lighthouse, and webpagetest.org. We'll profile several websites with different performance issues to illustrate how to use each tool. In this talk, I'll live-profile several sites to help you see how to approach performance analysis. It's best if you already know how to use the Chrome Dev Tools inspector, but we will approach the performance tools from a beginner's starting point. Attendees should be comfortable with HTML at a minimum.
