Your visitors expect a fast and optimized web experience regardless of the type of network they are on – rightfully so! Delivering instant mobile sites requires careful engineering: we must account for every network roundtrip, tune our servers, and prioritize delivery of critical assets — aka, we need to optimize the critical rendering path to deliver best rendering performance.

In this session we’ll take a deep dive into the lower layers of the web stack to identify the critical performance bottlenecks and then look at optimization tips and tricks that can help us break the “1000 ms time to glass” mobile barrier. As a bonus, we’ll demo some existing and upcoming tools we’ve been working on at Google to help with this entire process..
