“If plugin authors were better educated maybe they would make some different choices.”
In this episode of Post Status Excerpt, Cory and David talk about WordPress’s reputation relative to its performance. This discussion unfolds in light of a new proposal for a Performance Team for WordPress core. What should happen to improve the WordPress experience (for both the user and for search engines) on the front-end and the admin experience as well? Education? Notifications to the user?
