Building Faster Websites: Optimizing the Server
Page load time starts with the server. While your web servers are generating the page that your users are going to interact with, their browser window is completely blank. This makes server side performance extremely important for the overall usability of your site. In this talk Jonathan Klein will go into details about how to make your server generate pages more quickly, covering everything from the web server you choose to database optimizations and tips for writing faster server side code (focusing on PHP).
Jonathan Klein is a Senior Software Engineer at Wayfair, an online retailer based in Boston. He leads the storefront team, which does the majority of the development on Wayfair's customer facing websites. Whenever time allows he focuses on performance and scalability projects and thinks about ways to make software development easier. Jonathan organizes the Boston Web Performance Meetup group and the monthly #WPOChat on Twitter (@jonathanklein).
Meetings are open to the public via RSVP. You will have the chance to network and connect with fellow PHP developers.
