Web Directions Lazy Load ’21 session spotlight–The Latest on Measuring Web Performance

The Latest on Measuring Web Performance

Patrick Meenan, Engineering Fellow Catchpoint

At Lazy Load, our online front end performance focussed conference Patrick is going to explore the current state of web performance measurement, both in a lab (synthetic) environment and from real users (RUM). There has been a lot of exciting advancement in this space with Google’s Core Web Vitals and evolving of other metrics over the years.

We will also explore how synthetic and RUM data complement each other and when each is most appropriate to use.
