Slightly earlier than originally planned in light of the continued Covid-19 situation - Our Third Craft CMS Meetup of 2020!

Ben Croker will be holding a talk on 'Templating for Performance in Craft'
"You build and test your Craft site, the launch goes smoothly and all seems well. Until a few months later you notice that page loads are much less responsive than before. The site has more content than when it launched, but nothing else has changed. You thought you had built the templates using best practices, but did you really?!
We’ll look at how to benchmark your templates and ensure that your site is built for optimal performance that will not degrade over time, using the following best practices:
- Using the appropriate element query methods
- Memoizing the results
- Eager-loading elements"

Our venue is normally The Hercules Pillars London WC2B 5DG, however, in light of the Coronavirus - COVID19, this quarters meetup will also be held remotely.
