In this session we are going to delve deep into code performance. We’ll look at the tools you should use (Xdebug, JSPerf, curl-loader, etc), and why/when they’re beneficial. We’ll talk about transients, object caching, page caching, and other caching patterns that are quite successful when paired with WordPress. Finally, we’ll dive into the intricacies of navigating between local and remote development. We’ll also touch on WP-CLI, and other tools, systems and strategies for sanely taking your fine-tooled code into production.

Topics Covered:

  • Basic caching concepts of object and page caching
  • Implementing object and page caching in WordPress
