i18n was the missing piece: Let 70%+ of the users in the world access your apps
Accessibility, better DX, and performance get a lot of attention as it improves better UX significantly. Plus, it gives satisfaction to devs by seeing the significant improvements. But how about internationalisation? A fun fact: Over 70% of the users in the world access non-English content. In this talk, I’ll show you more surprising facts about internationalisation and what are scalable approaches. You’ll see examples with libraries for frameworks with a few different logic to implement different internationalisation layouts.

Harry Roberts speaks about Optimising Largest Contentful Paint

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 projects and clients and make all the improvements they’ll need.

Phil Hawksworth speaks about Render time

Render time
The way we thought about delivering and displaying content used to be simpler. Webservers sent HTML down the wire and browsers displayed it. Done. Pub? Not so fast! Now there are lots of ways content might be rendered for our users. And understanding what they all are, why you would choose what, and how they impact the development and the experience for the users is not always clear. In this talk, we’ll learn what SSR/CSR/SSG/DPR/DSG/ISR/ODB/SPA/MPA and Edge Rendering all really mean, along with their relative pros and cons. We’ll see how we might select the right one for different types of projects. And we’ll walk through a practical example which combines a number of rendering techniques to see how a web project can use a variety of complementary technologies with compelling results.
