WordPress Performance Class: Live event in NYC

11/14/2011

In two weeks, I’ll be teaching a live class on web performance in New York City.

I’ll be covering as much material as the time contraints permit, and there will be a Q/A portion at the end to address your specific questions.

The event will take place at New Work City in their main lecture area (I’m making that name up), and covered in brief will be the following:

  • The Business case for having a faster site
  • How to properly configure W3 Total Cache on your site
  • Overview of optimization tools available
  • Before/after speed test with optimization on/off
  • How to integrate a Content Delivery Network
  • Introduction to advanced topics (opcode cache integration, custom server, builds, etc.)

My schedule doesn’t often permit me to do live facilitation like this, so I look forward to sharing some of the things I’ve been busy with over the past few months.

And if the event gets the kind of traction I think it will, there will be a followup hand-on session in a more intimate setting. It will be at a higher price point and go into much more detail.

So if you run a self-hosted WordPress site, live in New York City, and want to learn how to extract the most performance out of your site, I hope you’ll join me.
