Have you ever run your site through one of the many online speed testing tools and received low marks for cryptically-named speed violations you'd never even heard of? Have you ever visited a site yourself and left before it loaded? Worse yet, have you ever taken a look at your analytics and realized your site is losing valuable users due to speed issues? WordPress sometimes gets a bad rap for being slow, but with strategic early planning, a knowledgeable speed testing approach, and practical performance adjustments, WordPress can be quite quick indeed.
**NOTE** - This meetup is taking place at the Galvanize Golden Triangle campus, NOT the platte campus.
