Talk Description:
How can you build a WordPress site that loads in less than a second, and why does it matter?

At Google, a 500 millisecond delay (just 0.5 seconds) resulted in a 20% decrease in search traffic. 74% of mobile web users will leave a site if it takes longer than 5 seconds to load. Meanwhile, web-enabled devices and user bandwidth are getting more varied and less predictable.
In this talk, Chris Ferdinandi shares tips and techniques that will dramatically increase your site performance.
