User: How to Test and Optimize your Website’s Speed

Monday, September 10, 2018
6:00 PM to 8:00 PM

U.S. Bancorp Tower Conference Rooms
111 SW 5th Avenue, Portland, OR

In this meetup, Doug Rider will be discussing website optimization and performance with an emphasis on verification tests.

Getting your website faster involves more than just optimizing your images and adding a caching plugin. Before you start down that path, you’ll need to test your current website’s speed so you can verify if your changes are making a positive difference.

Doug builds WordPress websites and provides hosting, maintenance, and support.

The agenda:

  • 6:00 – 6:15: Introductions. What you do, are you looking to hire, are you looking for work?
  • 6:15 – 6:45: Speaker and topic.
  • 6:45 – 7:00: Questions and answers on the topic.
  • 7:00 – 8:00: Get help with WordPress. Bring your laptop for this part. There’s a wide range of experience levels, and we’re all here to help each other.
  • 8:00: Soft close. You may hang out a bit longer to talk or finish up a project, but the official Meetup will end.
  • 8:30: Socialize at Bailey’s Taproom (213 SW Broadway). Let us know if you’re interested in joining!

To find us:

Training Room on the ground floor (to the right of the elevators and through the glass doors).
