WordPress is by far the most widely used content management system. Jessica Lyschik has already implemented many projects with it and advises companies whose WordPress sites are lame. In her talk “Boosting WordPress” she not only discusses the many possibilities WordPress offers for optimization, but also helps users of other systems. Her talk also helps users of other systems to track down and eliminate performance brakes.
Benjamin Kluck and Peter Mosenthin talk about caches and other means for speed optimization: Among other things they deal with the questions which max-age should be used where and how service workers help with performance and availability. The two lectures complete the c’t in February, which takes place as a purely online event without a presentation section.
One day, one topic: Performance

Martin Splitt, Developer Advocate at Google, will present Google’s metrics for high-performance websites, the Core Web Vitals, in his talk at c’t. Sia Karamalegos shows how to present only the smallest necessary image to a site’s visitors without sacrificing quality.
