Session Description:
Do you remember when you could run a "fast" WordPress site with just an Apache server and PHP? Yeah, those were days! Things were a lot less complicated then.

Now, everything has to load lightning fast! Visitors don't have the same expectations about loading times as they used to. A slow site can have serious implications for you or your client. You just can't have a site that feels fast to your visitors without adding a few more gears to your server engine.

During this talk, you'll learn what makes up the modern WordPress server stack. You'll see how the various pieces fit together to make your WordPress site fast. You'll leave knowing what your next steps are to get your own modern WordPress server stack.
