WordPress-to-Static: Building Super Faster, Low Maintenance Sites without Writing Code
The WordPress community is abuzz with talk of static sites. The speed and simplicity of static pages and sites make them an attractive option for many businesses and non-profits. Yet, how easy is it to produce these sites? Turns out, there are relatively straightforward, cost-effective ways for designers, content producers, and other non-technical folks to build WordPress sites for quick conversion to static sites. Come hear about how you can harness the power of WordPress-to-static sites without writing a single line of code.
Starting his creative career as a print designer, Liam Dempsey used to call himself a "designer who codes". Except he doesn't really write code any more – and hasn't for a few years. He runs a small marketing and design consultancy, LBDesign. Through LBDesign, Liam works with businesses and non-profits across the US, the UK and Africa. For the past year or so, Liam has been researching how to make static sites with WordPress without relying on Gatsby or writing code.
