WP Omaha: Admin
Speaker: you guessed it! - Rob Ruiz
Tech: WP Admin

Whether you are just getting started with a new WP site, or you are an experienced WordPress admin, it is (or becomes) clear that although WordPress is convenient for those who don't understand web development to build a site, it comes at a bit of a cost - mostly in performance. But why is that? And what can we do about it?

At this talk, Rob will discuss:
- common WP speed problems
- Impacts of having a slow site
- How to test your site's speed
- caching plugins, the difference between them and what they do
- Emerging tech like AMP & Static Site Generators, and why people choose them over and with WP

There's a lot to consider when thinking about WP performance and a lot of mysterious magic behind the scenes. It's important to understand a bit of that magic so we know how to control it. Lets make sure we start the year off with all cylinders firing and our site tuned for maximum speed.
