Presentation: Performance Hacking

“This session will present clear instructions on how to make a website load faster. There are 3 main areas that affect a website’s performance: server side stack, application code and frontend components. The same is true for WordPress. I’ll begin by providing an overview of why speed is so important for every website. Next, the tools required for analysis are introduced and their use is demonstrated. Then, I’ll spend the bulk of the talk focusing on specific frontend best practices that every designer and developer can apply to help speed up the websites they build.”
