The WordPress Performance Team

  1. 1. Felix Arntz / Toronto WebPerf Meetup, December 2021 The WordPress Performance Team Enhancing performance in WordPress core and ecosystem
  2. 2. May I introduce… I am deeply excited by this proposal! This is a great initiative. It might finally get the attention it deserves. 💯 👍 for creating a contributor group that focuses on the performance! This is a wonderful idea. Performance is one area where WordPress can make great strides.
  3. 3. The problem: WordPress sites are slow!
  4. 4. Analysis: Why are WordPress sites slow? * This audit is for a diagnostic rather than an opportunity, therefore the relative difference to opportunity audit values may be slightly skewed. Audit Mobile (ms) Desktop (ms) JavaScript execution time * 447,330 115,694 Modern image formats 339,810 58,320 Responsive images 165,880 44,160 Unused JavaScript 154,080 28,980 Render-blocking resources 114,386 27,888 Redirects 102,847 33,040 Mobile Desktop
  5. 5. Complexity: Why are WordPress sites slower? (than those from other CMSs like Shopify, Squarespace, Wix, …) ● WordPress has an open extension model ● WordPress runs in an uncontrolled environment ● WordPress lacks guidance around performance ● WordPress is “out of control”! → Historically, performance has often been called “plugin territory”. But for the WordPress ecosystem to excel in performance, it has to start at the core.
  6. 6. The WordPress Performance Team is a dedicated working group to tackle monitoring, enhancing, and promoting performance in WordPress core and its surrounding ecosystem.

  9. 9. A centralized repository and plugin github.com/WordPress/performance Keep an eye out for the upcoming WordPress performance plugin! ● A single plugin with individual performance modules ● Test future WordPress core performance features ahead of time ● “Feature plugin bundle”
