Democratizing Performance

Democratizing Performance

Performance is essential for user experience and is becoming increasingly important for search engines through core web vitals. Just as WordPress democratizes publishing, it can also play a significant role in making good performance accessible to everyone.

This presentation highlights recent improvements made by the WordPress core performance team and upcoming new features that the team is working on. Developers will learn about existing and new tools available to them to identify performance issues in plugins and themes.

The presentation also depicts a future where site owners do not have to worry about performance thanks to a faster ecosystem, transparent performance ratings, and helpful AI assistants that can help analyze websites, identify potential performance issues, and provide custom-tailored solutions.
