Caching For WordPress – A TEK-X Webinar

« »

Anyone who has worked with WordPress knows that it’s greatest strength is also one of it’s greatest weaknesses: it’s architecture. The same architecture that makes it easy to include literally hundreds of plugins also makes it slow, resource-intensive and bulky. Unlike Drupal, WordPress doesn’t have a built-in caching mechanism. What is a developer to do?

On Friday, I’ll be presenting a webcast called “Caching for WordPress.” In this webcast, we’ll talk about ways to make WordPress perform better, including aspects of caching from the application perspective and from the content perspective. There will be a discussion of caching plugins available, as well as a discussion of the WordPress API and what it offers by way of caching opportunities.

This webcast is presented free, and is part of the TEK-X Webcast series. You must sign up, however, and you can do that by visiting theTEK-X Webinar page and registering!

While I’m sure you’ve done your research, I can’t not mention W3 Total Cache.

I’ve tried a few different cache plugins, but this absolutely without questions blows all others out of the water.

Good luck on your webinar!

I’ve actually found that W3 Total Cache is NOT the best cache under certain circumstances. But you’ll have to come to the webinar to see why. ;-)
