We know WordPress is a great foundation for most publishers, but the modern web is becoming more and more demanding of our publishing platforms. Building more dynamic and complex web experiences are putting pressure on WordPress to deliver, especially at scale.

In this talk, Ben discussed and featured some work The Code Company did to build best of breed WordPress publishing platforms for their clients. Specifically, how their team work in a microservice architecture approach, native within WordPress, while resisting the urge to introduce additional technologies.

At the end of this talk, people left with some different ideas around how to architect and build more advanced services for high traffic WordPress sites without going over the top and some examples of what can go wrong.”
