Winning the Performance Race
Over the past two years, we’ve dramatically improved Wix Website performance, beating all of our competitors in Core Web Vitals. This project was a company-wide effort to finally solve the number one user complaint in the company – live site performance. 
In this talk, I will take a deep dive into the design changes that were implemented to achieve this significant improvement, and explain why and how those solutions could be applied in any web application to achieve similar results.
