  • Sarah Ovenall: Lightning Fast Performance with a Headless Home Page

    Sarah Ovenall: Lightning Fast Performance with a Headless Home Page

    WordCamp Raleigh 2019Speaker: Sarah Ovenall

    May 10, 2019 — The ability to customize with ease is one of WordPress’ best features. But customization often impacts performance. Add too many bells and whistles and you may end up with a site that’s sluggish and painful to use.

    Decoupling, or using WordPress on the backend only, is an effective if somewhat drastic way to improve site performance. In this session we’ll learn a limited version of decoupling WordPress: a headless home page. Decoupling the home page gives you a functional, fast home page that displays WordPress content without invoking WordPress (and without the load time!). We’ll cover different approaches to serving WordPress content outside WordPress, how to seamlessly integrate a headless home page into the rest of the site, and challenges to look out for.

  • Mikel King: High Performance WordPress Part Duex

    Mikel King: High Performance WordPress Part Duex

    WordCamp Buffalo 2019Speaker: Mikel King

    May 8, 2019 — Description: Session Abstract:
It has been 5 yrs since High Performance WordPress and a lot has changed. This is an updated talk with new material that builds on the lessons learned in my 2014 WCNYC talk. There is a discussion about theme and plugin design.

Goal: 
Teach developers how to design with performance in mind. How should you structure your theme and plugin code to not be a bottle neck to page load time. What are some of the tools you can use to analyze your code to improve the efficiency. 

This talk is also a good session for non devs to catch some Zzzzz (just kidding), but seriously devs will be on the edge of their seats taking notes and learning new stuff.

    Site owners/maintainers will learn about important concepts like CDN configurations and tools they can use so that they may have informed discussions with their developers/consultants.

    Rick Viscomi: Demystifying Web Performance Tools (Workshop)

    WordCamp NYC 2018Speaker: Rick Viscomi

    January 28, 2019 — There are many tools that help us understand and improve the state of web performance on our WordPress sites. But it’s not always obvious which tool is right for the job and how to use it. When would I use “field” data from real users? What is my “lab” testing tool trying to tell me? In this workshop, we will examine the landscape of tools at our disposal: WebPageTest, HTTP Archive, Google Analytics, and the Chrome User Experience Report. We will use these tools and real world examples to better understand how slow a website is, what is causing it, and how to fix it.

    Chris Gladney: Improving Site Performance through Responsive Images

    WordCamp Boston 2018Speaker: Chris Gladney

    January 10, 2019 — Images typically account for the greatest number of bytes downloaded when viewing a web page. Because of this, images are an area in which there’s huge opportunity to lower the size of a page, decrease load time, and increase performance. In this session, we’ll touch briefly on the basics of how to use the appropriate file types for images on a site. From there, we’ll dig a bit deeper and discuss methods to implement responsive images, browser-specific image formats like WebP, and how to optimizing responsive images further via lazy loading. Finally, we’ll go over building out a workflow for automating image optimization via WordPress’ built-in add_image_size function and task-automation tools like Gulp and Grunt.
