This workshop will cover the basics of understanding blocking resources, how browser threads work, and how to minimize blocking resources. We will review some examples and analyze submitted sites. Participants will learn to identify and resolve blocking issues on their own sites.
This workshop will cover the basics of blocking resources, how they affect Core Web Vitals, and how to identify and fix blocking issues on your website.
The workshop will be divided into three sections:
An introductory presentation covering the basics of blocking resources, how browser threads work, and why (and what) resources can be blocking for the browser.
A live analysis review of submitted sites. Workshop participants will submit their website URLs ahead of time and a handful will be selected for analysis. We will go through performance reports and dev tools traces to understand and investigate how to resolve blocking related issues.
A final section where participants will try the techniques they learned in the workshop on their own sites.
The workshop will conclude with a summary of the concepts learned and some interactive polls to see what participants got out of the workshop.
