Main items on the list are:

  • General ways to help
  • Helping the QA team
  • Helping with PEAR
  • Helping with the Documentation

5 Ways to Speed Up Your Site
Jun 22, 2006 @ 07:31:06

Paul Stamatiou shares with us today five ways to speed up your site, some quick and easy recommendations to making your site fly.

Throughout the blogosphere I'm always seeing these blogs, that while they look great, are horribly slow and overburdened. Over the past few months I have become somewhat of a website optimization specialist, bringing my own site from an over 250kB homepage to its current 34kB.

I will help you achieve some of the same success with a few, powerful tips. Most of these are common sense, but I can’t stress their importance enough. I will concentrate on the website and not the server in this article, as there are too many things to discuss when it comes to server optimization.

The five tips mentioned include "Reduce Overall Latency by Reducing HTTP Requests" and "Compression", each with a paragraph or so of explaination as to what it is and how to implement it. There's even a PHP-specific one that talks about a paring down of the bits of functionality that really aren't needed.
