Sonny Parlin ( will be leading this presentation and discussion on running and maintaing a high traffic WordPress website. Here's his intro:

I currently run, maintain and develop a relatively high traffic WordPress site (500k unique visitors/mo and just over 1m page views).

We have gone through many growing pains but have ultimately found a balance of software, hardware and middleware to keep the site running smooth and able to handle traffic spikes.

I'd love to discuss some of the problems and solutions related to running such a site and I would be even more excited to meet others in a similar situation to see how they've dealt with their traffic demands.


WaVE is located in the beer can building, presumably on the second floor (Suite 200). You can easily enter through the cube building and walk through to access the elevators.


You can attempt to park in the underground parking (entrance off Ashley), though I warn you it's fairly expensive and such a tight squeeze for even your compact car. You may be better off trying to find a street spot (free in evening hours), parking in the Poe garage (also on Ashley, a few bucks) and then walking.
