During this meetup we will have two talks focused on WordPress performance and one talk about introduction to WP CLI.

# Talk 1: The 5 Most Common Reasons for a Slow WordPress Site and How to Fix Them - Otto Kekäläinen

One can build very fast websites with WordPress, but quite often many WordPress sites end up being rather slow. This talk describes the 5 most common reasons for a WordPress site to be slow and how those issues are best fixed. Based on our experiences hosting thousands of WordPress websites at Seravo.com we have noticed that the root cause to slowness is usually about something gone wrong on the WordPress site itself and that it can be fixed with a few simple changes. This talk covers examples ranging from things less technical people can learn from all the way to using Xdebug and Tideways to solve more complex performance issues on real WordPress sites.

# Talk 2. Introduction to the WordPress CLI - Stanislav Khromov

Do you want to manage your WordPress site like a movie hacker? Then you've come to the right session. After this talk you will (almost) forget about the normal wp-admin interface and embrace terminal-based management of your website. You will learn how to update WordPress, install plugins and themes, check your installation for hacking attempts and much more!

# Talk 3. Better and faster images with WordPress - Jonathan Sulo

Images usually takes up half the size of a WordPress website. It's one of the most important things to optimize, in order to reduce loading time. In this talk we will go through the basics, like what formats and image sizes to use, and more advanced techniques, like scheduled optimization and WP-CLI.

Learn how to reduce the size of your website and increase the number of (happy) visitors with Jonathan Sulo, performance expert at Servebolt.com.
