Video: A technical plan for success: Preparing to optimize 4,000+ sites at NYU

You can learn more about this session on the WPCampus 2017 website at https://2017.wpcampus.org/schedule/technical-plan-success-preparing-optimize-4000-sites-nyu/.

Session Description:
Universities today leverage WordPress Multisite to empower students, update faculty content and course notes, and bring entire communities together. With large multisites and small teams, it is common for performance headaches to occur: faculty can’t update or create course sites, students can’t blog and share their stories, and the internal dev team struggles with losing insight and coverage over such a large network. To avoid small issues from becoming large bottlenecks, internal teams need to be set up with a winning process.

In this session we’ll lay the groundwork on what that process should look like beginning with the technical audit and leading to the implementation of a full webops toolkit. We’ll cover this session utilizing our client, NYU, as an example along the way.
