    WordCamp Asheville 2019Speaker: Ryan Glisson

    August 6, 2019 — In my 15 years of overall web dev experience, 10 years of direct WP work, I still see the same mistakes being made. Image sizes.

  • Kim Kaiser: Don’t Shard Your Pants! A WordPress / Amazon Domain Sharding Solution for Images

    Kim Kaiser: Don’t Shard Your Pants! A WordPress / Amazon Domain Sharding Solution for Images

    WordCamp Detroit 2018Speaker: Kim Kaiser

    March 29, 2019 — Web browsers limit the number of active connections for each domain, but browsers distinguish domains by name rather than by IP address. Domain sharding, in which content is split across multiple subdomains, may drastically improve the user experience of slow page load times for image-heavy pages, but only if your server has sufficient bandwidth. Uploading content to Amazon S3 and using CloudFront to serve images from multiple subdomains has been shown to be an effective way to use domain sharding. In addition, when images are uploaded to S3, a Node.js script is triggered which creates thumbnails and the larger web versions of the full sized, high resolution images. The final step happens during the creation of a WordPress custom post type, where the domain sharding is actually applied.

    Carlos Alberto Sobrino: Optimización de imágenes para la web

    WordPress Pontevedra MeetupSpeaker: Carlos Alberto Sobrino

    March 18, 2019 — Tras una pequeña, y casi obligada, introducción en el que intentaremos
    sentar conceptos sobre las imágenes digitales, nos meteremos de lleno
    en intentar comprender el funcionamiento de los formatos más empleados en la web: JPEG y PNG.

    Conociendo cómo trabajan estos formatos y algunas de sus variaciones,
    mejoraremos nuestra capacidad para decidir qué formato nos conviene y
    qué opciones tocar para conseguir una mejor optimización.

    Veremos qué podemos modificar con un software de edición fotográfica,
    algunas aplicaciones para optimizar imágenes y, como no, algunos plugins para WordPress.

    Para ir terminando, pasaremos por encima de algunos formatos
    alternativos que nos propone Google.

    ¿Es viable emplear alguno de estos
    formatos?
