And we're back for the in-person events at the new Fastly office, come hang out & learn about the important topics in UX Speed AKA Web Performance!

Only 10 years ago, custom web fonts were a niche feature, but today they are used by 83% of websites. While it's easy to add & use web fonts, there are many ways that they can negatively impact web performance & user experience.

During this talk Paul will provide an overview of custom web fonts & some web performance techniques you can use to optimize them. We'll look at examples from the HTTP Archive & explore some free tools that can be used to analyze & optimize fonts on your site.

Fastly is hosting us again. And they still have food & beer!

As always, we are going to have geekaways with geeky prizes provided by our sponsors.
