Slides from presentation at WordCamp Orlando 2016.

Nobody likes waiting for a slow site. You have less than 5 seconds to engage your customer before they leave. With users increasingly on the go and having mobile connections of varying speeds, page-delivery performance has become more critical.

In this presentation we went over tips and techniques that will dramatically increase your page load times.

In detail we covered: why speed is important, how you can measure it, how you can compare your page speed to your competitors, and ways to improve it.

We also discussed HTTP/2 protocol and how it can benefit website performance.
