For web developers or SREs leveraging Single Page Applications, client-side rendering can create challenges of control, visibility, and understanding user experience. Modern synthetic monitoring promises deeper understanding and visibility into user experience in pre-production, and after deployment. Join Developer and Technology Advocates Tetiana Kelly and Scott Mason, as they discuss how they leveraged synthetic monitoring to identify performance improvement opportunities for Splunk’s global SPA, The Quest for Observability. From measuring user experiences across geographies, to compression and image optimization opportunities, this talk provides best practices and lessons learned to help engineers deploy better SPAs.
