"In this presentation I’ll show how WordPress themes (and sites) can be built to achieve 100/100 Google pagespeed. You’ll learn about my process of using Gulp to concatenate and minify resources, along with intentional enqueues and dequeues."

Bonus: some ways to configure cache plugins to achieve a similar effect.

Take aways:

  • How front-end performance effects mobile users on slower speeds.
  • Tips on improving front-end performance.
  • Gulp basics and how to use with WordPress.
