Harry is an independent Consultant Web Performance Engineer from the UK. He helps some of the world’s largest and most respected organisations find and fix their site-speed issues.
He is both a Google- and a Cloudinary Media- Developer Expert, and has consulted for clients from the United Nations to the BBC, General Electric to the Financial Times, and a whole host more.
When not doing client work, he writes, teaches, and speaks about the entire gamut of front-end performance. When not doing work at all, he’s probably out on his bike.
Optimising Largest Contentful Paint
Since Google announced their Core Web Vitals (CWV) initiative, being fast is more important than ever. However, despite being by far the easiest CWV to monitor, debug, and optimise—in both the lab and field—Largest Contentful Paint (LCP) is still the one that most websites struggle with.
In this very practical talk, we’ll look at what exactly comprises LCP, how we might be working against ourselves, and how to make opportunistic optimisations to get ourselves back in the green (and beyond).
And even if none of those terms meant anything to you, don’t worry! You’ll leave this talk fully equipped to go back to your own project and clients and make all the improvements they’ll need. Get ready to ask for a pay rise.
