    Micah Wood: The WordPress Developer’s Guide to Caching

    WordCamp Asheville 2019Speaker: Micah Wood

    August 8, 2019 — Caching can be tricky business. Fundamentally, the concept is simple: storing a temporary copy of data so future requests can be served faster. In reality, there are a number of different types of caching. Certain types of caching can effect our code in different ways. Data changes and the cache has to be invalidated. What happens if a caching layer runs out of memory or goes down?
    This session will enlighten those new to caching as well as introduce some common misconceptions, pitfalls and strategies to caching in WordPress themes and plugins.
    Takeaways:

    What caching is
    What types of caching exist
    What developers should know about caching when developing on WordPress

  • Maura Teal: The Balancing Act of Caching in WordPress

    Maura Teal: The Balancing Act of Caching in WordPress

    WordCamp Europe 2018Speaker: Maura Teal

    July 9, 2018 — Utilizing caching mechanisms in a WordPress product is a balancing act: what remote calls are cacheable, what queries are slow and only occasionally needed, and how will it all impact the end user? In some cases we can set up our environment for a base level of performance, and in others we’ll need to balance data storage (like autoloaded options) and other background processes so they take the overall environment into consideration. I’ll be including my own experiences as a web developer working on a large-scale WordPress multisite as well as sharing the perspective from a hosting company’s point of view.

    Zach Stepek: eCommerce Speed Demon – How To Break The Speed Barrier

    WordCamp Nashville 2016Speaker: Zach Stepek

    March 18, 2017 — In eCommerce, speed is your most important metric. Mere milliseconds can mean the difference between a sale and an abandoned cart, which could mean millions of dollars in lost sales. I’ve spent a good portion of the last three years in pursuit of page speed, exploring caching, virtual machines, hosting platforms, SSL negotiation time, CSS preprocessing, minification, inline styles and WooCommerce optimizations with the goal of sub-one second pageloads. Using real-world examples, I’ll show you the results I’ve been able to achieve and how to replicate them yourself.

  • Jan Thiel: Mythbuster – WordPress Performance

    Jan Thiel: Mythbuster – WordPress Performance

    WordCamp Nuremberg 2016Speaker: Jan Thiel

    April 21, 2016 — Vieles können wir im Internet über das Thema „Wie mache ich meine WordPress Seite schneller“ lesen. Leider findet man all zu oft nur einseitig dargestellte Lösungsansätze ohne Erklärung des „Warums“. Auch werden nicht selten Dinge von Marketing Menschen und Firmen in den Himmel gelobt, die schlichtweg keinen reellen Nutzen haben. In seiner Session möchte Jan die gängigen Performance Optimierungen aufzeigen und diverse Methoden als totalen Schwachsinn (für die große Mehrheit) entlarven. Die Methoden, die von jedem Anwender nutzbar und auch mit wenig Aufwand umsetzbar sind, möchte er kurz technisch erläutern, um es uns zu ermöglichen, tatsächlich selbst zu verstehen, warum eine Maßnahme funktioniert und andere nicht. Einleitend wird er anhand einiger bunter Diagramme aus dem wahren Leben aufzeigen, wo ein WordPress (wenn überhaupt) „langsam“ wird. Dabei werden Themen wir Browser Caching, Server Caching, Varnish, CDN, Minifizierung, Komprimierung, sowie die Frage, wo eine Optimierung vorgenommen werden kann und soll auf- und erklärt. Nach seinem Vortrag sollten diverse Lachmuskeln trainiert worden sein und einige Einhörner im Auditorium ihr Unwesen getrieben haben. Im Idealfall werden wir zukünftig weniger auf die sinnfreien Marketingsprüche diverser Anbieter reinfallen, die z.B. das CDN als Gottes Antwort auf Ladezeiten anpreisen. Auch soll die Hilfe zur Selbsthilfe im Vordergrund stehen mit direkten Tipps und Tricks die wenig kosten und viel bringen.
