In 2021, WP Engine’s own Web Marketing team undertook the major project of understanding and achieving >90% scores across the board in Google’s CWV scoring system. Ryan Hoover from WP Engine and Lindsy Farina from New Relic will explain how to use real user data to overcome the limitations of synthetic tests.
