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.

Next week is php|tek in Chicago.
Every day I’ll be blogging, tweeting and generally writing about how the conference is going. It will be fresh, fast, and relevant.
Also, in conjunction with John Bafford and my company, The Bivings Group, we’ve set up an auto-updating php|tek Twitter feed at http://twitter.bivings.com/. Note: Internet Explorer doesn’t work 100% well with this site, but Firefox, Chrome and Safari work perfectly.
