When starting on a web performance journey, many companies’ first step is to start monitoring performance metrics over time. But the second step is often much harder - now that you have all of this data, what do you do when you see a regression? How do you sift through the clues to connect a change in a graph to the code that engineers ship to production? How do you become a performance detective?
In this session, Katie will crack open her casefiles to share some real-world examples where performance metrics changed for the worse, and walk through how to find the culprit. You’ll learn what clues to look for to understand a regression in your Core Web Vitals, how different performance metrics influence each other, and when to use data gathered from real users vs. synthetic tests in the lab.
