the web performance conference2-3 November 2023, Amsterdam


Here's our provisional schedule for this year's; changes are still possible.

Sessions are 50 minutes, including Q&A. On both days we'll have drinks, a bite and post-conference conversations at the venue from 18:00 to 21:00.

During the breaks, you can get answers to your web performance questions at the new Performance Help Desk, sponsored by Google. The help desk will be staffed throughout the conference by members of Google's Core Web Vitals team and other experts from the performance community.
