Fast By Default: Modern loading best practices

Optimizing sites to load instantly on mobile is far from trivial. Costly JavaScript can take seconds to process, we often aren't sensitive to users data-plans and browsers don't know what UX-critical resources should load first. Thankfully there's a lot we can do to give our users a MUCH better loading experience. Watch Addy Osmani (and friends) illuminate new loading best practices for diagnosing and making real world sites load instantly today.

WordPress + PWA = 💝

About 50% of sites in the web are powered by Content Management Systems; and that trend is growing. Integrating Progressive Technologies into the workflow of platforms such as WordPress and other CMSes is of paramount importance for ensuring that users get an awesome experience in these environments. In this talk we will discuss the challenges involved in the integration of progressive technologies with CMSes in general and WordPress in particular, and present a working proof of concept of how such an integration would work in the context of WordPress.

Progressively improving e-commerce

Online shopping is a fundamental challenge for the mobile web. Last year mobile e-commerce was worth $123 billion in the US alone, and globally the mobile share of e-commerce is growing. Around two thirds of purchases on mobile are now on the web — and yet conversion rates are far lower than on desktop. In this session, we will focus on what matters to your business and your users, using those metrics to prioritise and prove modern web features. Find out how to build better landing and browsing pages, reduce login and checkout friction, and implement network-resilient, offline-enabled search.
