Weekly Web Development links

Do you remember how I said the other week that last week will be a bumper week of News? Well.... It would have been if we launched what we had planned to launch.

Chrome Developer Tools: Performance Group [link]

Here on Chrome we want to make it easier for everyone to create high performance web applications with a great user experience. If you are interested in or working with web performance, we'd love to learn about how you interact with web performance tools, where you struggle and hear your great ideas! Sign up using the above link if you would like to participate and we will send you a follow-up email soon.

I lead the Chrome Developer Relations team at Google.

We want people to have the best experience possible on the web without having to install a native app or produce content in a walled garden.

Our team tries to make it easier for developers to build on the web by supporting every Chrome release, creating great content to support developers on web.dev, contributing to MDN, helping to improve browser compatibility, and some of the best developer tools like Lighthouse, Workbox, Squoosh to name just a few.

I love to learn about what you are building, and how I can help with Chrome or Web development in general, so if you want to chat with me directly, please feel free to book a consultation.
