Optimizing Your Web Performance: Separating the Signals from the Noise

Everyone agrees on the theory of optimizing web performance but how does it work in practice? In this talk I will be sharing the journey Trainline has been on leading up to Google introducing Core Web Vitals as a ranking signal this month. It will include how as a team we learned to separate out actionable insights from the reporting noise and how we built out our hypotheses to then have to tear them down. I’d like the audience to leave with clearer direction on how they can actually move the needle in web performance – and why it’s more important to measure this from the customer’s perspective and to learn how it impacts their experience.
