web.dev: intentions, reflections, and aspirations

Friday, February 22, 2019 - 17:00
San Francisco

Last year, the Chrome Web Dev team took inventory over the content we were publishing. We realized that we weren’t being as explicit as we could be in showing developers how to fix the problems affecting end users the most. We also realized that we could do a better job understanding our developers, meeting them where they are, and making it easier, fast, fun, to do better web.

The web.dev site launched as a beta at Chrome Dev Summit. With web.dev, developers can assess their site’s health, and get personalized guidance on making improvements. Soon we’ll provide happy paths for developers to build for the modern web. Come learn about the intentions behind web.dev, some reflections on what we’ve learned since the beta launch, and where we aspire to be in the near future. We’ve got a lot more work to do. Any and all feedback welcome and needed.
