Best Practices For Faster Websites

Best Practices For Faster Websites

Why is my site slow? I hear this a lot from people. In this presentation we discussed how you can test website speed, figure out what's causing loading delay, and what are the best practices you can implement to make your site load faster. We went over images, caching, 3rd parties, HTTP/2 protocol and more.
