За Семинара

WordPress is currently powering over 34% of the world’s web platforms, and holds a remarkable 61.1% market share amongst websites using a CMS. The amount of large enterprises, dynamic startups and publishers with millions of monthly users, using WordPress as a CMS, has been growing exponentially over the past years.

What those businesses need, and any other WordPress-based website per se, is to maintain the platform's stability and constantly improve page load speed, while adding tons of complex functionality and utilizing numerous third-party resources within their tech stack.

In this seminar, Bojidar will talk about a few of the advanced performance optimization and stability techniques he has used on WordPress, followed by a short demo.

What you will learn:
• Why serving proper image sizes is an important speed optimization factor;
• Lazy loading of images: when do you need it;
• GZIP compression: why it helps and when it can be used;
• Technologies that help: Cloudflare caching techniques, caching via service workers;
• Caching admin-ajax.php requests: why GET works;
• JS deferring and async loading of JS: most common JS optimization techniques for achieving a faster load of heavy pages.
