WordPress Meetup Tokyo – March 2014: Optimization Show and Tell

We had the 11th WordPress Meetup Tokyo in Co-Edo on Saturday (almost one year since we started the group!). Today’s topic was WordPress Optimization and we had 4 speakers.

Some links are posted on the Meetup.com event page, so I’ll post some of my own here:

Keita talked about his experience with current Nginx/HHVM/MariaDB setup (slides), Toru shared insights on the “WordPress Template” feature (pre-configured Nginx + WordPress + CentOS setup) on ConoHa VIP service, and Stefan taught us about using Google PageSpeed Insights and Charles to analyze / debug site performance.
I also learned a bit about WoodWing Enterprise WordPress connector, which is a publishing system used behind recently relaunched TIME.com).

The coworking space’s owner Tanaka-san had a big surprise for Keita and myself! He had 2 ninjas deliver wedding gifts to us 🙂 We enjoyed some wine and juice thanks to them.
