  • Cache: anche gli oggetti scadono, come lo yogurt

    WordCamp Italy (Italia) 2022Speaker: Fabrizio Leo

    December 18, 2022 — Uno dei principali obiettivi di chi realizza siti WordPress è sicuramente l’aspetto prestazionale.

    Tra i metodi più diffusi per raggiungere quest’obiettivo c’è sicuramente l’utilizzo della cache.

    Tutti sappiamo, più o meno, cos’è la cache di un sito web e come funziona ma non tutti i sistemi di cache danno gli stessi risultati.

    In questo talk vedremo insieme l’utilizzo dei sistemi di cache come strumento fondamentale per massimizzare le prestazioni, ridurre l’assorbimento di risorse server-side e gestire picchi di traffico importanti. Vedremo, inoltre, quali sono, secondo la mia esperienza, le migliori tecnologie Open Source di cache e un caso studio di un sito WordPress ad alto traffico.
