Post Status Excerpt (No. 49) — Performance Team Check-in
“Site owners shouldn’t be doing performance for the sake of performance but for their own success on the web.” —Thierry Muller
In this episode of Post Status Excerpt, David decides it’s a good time to check in on the newly formed WordPress Performance Team with Felix Arntz and Thierry Muller. They talk about the things the Performance Team targeted first (and why), backward compatibility, and what other CMSes (beyond WordPress) do a good job with performance. Find out how all of us in the WordPress community can support the performance team.
Why This is Important: Performance is an often-discussed topic when it comes to WordPress. The diversity of the plugin ecosystem brings unique performance challenges with it. WordPress core itself needs to remain competitive, if not lead, in performance.
