[16:26] - “[Astro] is probably not quite as fast as if you’d literally gone through and written everything in Vanilla HTML and CSS. But it’s pretty dang close with conveniences.” ~ @rwwagner90

[19:50] - “Apollo Studio gives you some excellent metrics and traces into what’s going on and where things are slow and even down to the resolvers for each individual key, things like that, and some interesting cache stuff.
