Simon is passionate about web performance and user experience. He works at Akamai helping to build better online experiences.
In this talk we will get deep into HTTP Archive, browser developer tools and Real User Monitoring (RUM) data. We’ll discover which third-party tags have the greatest impact on user experience, how ad blockers impact site speed and what to look out for when evaluating a new third-party service. Most importantly, we will discuss techniques to manage third-party performance & security without creating friction with marketing and analytics teams!
