Abstract

Core Web Vitals (CWVs) have become the standard measurement of UX quality and search engine ranking across the web. CWVs are central to monitoring an application’s frontend performance in production, and they can also provide crucial insight into the user experience.

In this workshop, you’ll learn how to monitor standard CWVs for a web application with Datadog, and dive into the fundamental set of CWVs that measure loading performance, time to interactivity, and visual stability. We’ll walk through how you can locate and mitigate issues that create poor CWV scores and verify their resolution with Real User Monitoring, and explore how to set up automated alerts to notify your team if a CWV score falls below an acceptable threshold. After attending this workshop, you’ll be able to recognize how CWVs can help you deliver a positive experience to your users while advancing your key business objectives.
