Each of our sessions feature 3 separate presenters focusing on a specific aspect of some WordPress topic. Each presentation will have roughly 30-40 minutes allotted for instruction and 15 minutes allotted for Q&A at the end. This means that each session is scheduled for approximately three hours (give or take a few minutes for opening and closing remarks, plus intermission between presenters).
About This Session
For 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 touch on WP-CLI, and other tools, systems and strategies for sanely taking your fine-tooled code into production.

We’ll release more details about this session as they become available, so stay tuned!
