Web Directions Lazy Load ’21 session spotlight–Building a Performance Culture

Building a Performance Culture

Claire Tran, Software Engineering Manager, Director SafetyCulture, Women Who Code Sydney

A great user experience often ties into the performance of an application. The user’s first impression of the site they are visiting can be a make or break scenario, and if the performance is slow that can have an impact on the growth of a business.

Behind the scenes, there are teams working on an application, performance is sometimes an afterthought and becomes a focus later on.

In this talk, I will cover what performance culture looks like, how this starts and some ways to communicate the value of performance, as well as ways to drive engagement.
