Akamai’s Paul Calvano Interviewed on “The State of the Web”

September 5, 2018 · by Javier Garza ·

I wanted to share a great video from two people who I happen to know and who are very active in the web performance community. Rick Viscomi from Google and Paul Calvano from Akamai recently sat down to have a chat in the fantastic State of the Web YouTube series.  In this interview, entitled "Leveraging web transparency," Paul shares his thoughts on how to utilize HTTP Archive, CrUX, and RUM data to understand web performance in order to make websites and mobile apps faster and more secure. As a bonus, Paul shares the things that excite him most about the future of the web. Take a look:

For reference, here's a list of some of the helpful resources mentioned in the video:
