April 21, 2020 — One of the most common misconceptions about WordPress is that it does not scale well and is only for small sites. This assumption is untrue, but it exists because of wider misconceptions about the use of WordPress and its purpose. With good planning and consideration before and during a WordPress project’s lifecycle, we can ensure that the project scales well and has the flexibility to add new features without too much scope creep or performance impact. By avoiding waste, using coding standards, and adopting a serious software development mindset to WordPress projects it is easy to build WordPress sites that will scale effectively. This talk will introduce these concepts.

November 22, 2016 — Don’t you just hate it when a large traffic spike comes your way and your website goes down? Is your server set-up shakier than an all-night Red Bull + espresso bender at Starbucks? Is your web host holding you back from running your website of your dreams? Then setting up on top of Amazon’s cloud is definitely for you! There is a lot of information about how to set-up a server and running a basic WordPress site on Amazon Web Services. But there isn’t a lot of information on building a highly-available, scalable, enterprise-grade, infrastructure to power WordPress. This talk will cover the nuts and bolts of a highly-scalable cloud hosting set-up specifically for WordPress through my own experience re-architecting BillyPenn.com.
October 31, 2016 — Everybody wants their site to be scalable. From shared hosting customers to large media companies on expensive dedicated hardware, people deserve to get every last bit of performance that they’ve paid for.
However, most people don’t even bother to load test their sites. And of those who do, a number tend to only run basic tests on their local machine. To truly understand what you can reasonably expect, you need to throw real traffic (and real scenarios) at your production environment.
In this session, we will discuss how to generate tests that mimic realistic user traffic, ways to run these tests against your site, and what to do after you realize things maybe aren’t as fast as you’d thought.
