I am at #MagentoImagine 2019 this year at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas. Great food and fun times networking. What follows is a recap of some of the hottest panel topics in Magento development. This post is on Frontend Performance QA.
These details are gleaned from notes I took while taking in the panels, so keep that in mind if anything seems overly obvious.
This was an open QA, so I am going to format details I gleaned a bit different from previous posts.
This was actually brought up by an attendee and Andrew seemed reluctant at first to answer since the talk was recorded and he didn't want to show favoritism (and give free advertising) to agencies and firms. However, after a few statements, he seemed to warm to the possibility. In my opinion, this could be a good thing for the community as it gives developers something to strive toward. Bonus points if we can get details on implementations!
The newest version of Google Lighthouse is a given for developers - it isn't hyperbole in saying that the profiling capability of this tool is so vast that not using it means missing out on key performance metrics not seen via the standard Chrome console. Web Page Test is old and antiquated, but Andrew states that it gives HTTP2 info not readily available or accurate with other tools.
