Speed Kills. More accurately the lack of speed kills. It kills your visitors waiting for a page to load. It kills the search engines trying to index your site. It kills your number of page views, your rankings, your conversions, your user experience, your revenue, and the reach of your message.

This presentation is all about tips and tricks for smaller Drupal sites to speed them up like the big boys at low or no cost.

At A Small Orange we have a large number of clients who love Drupal and also love a value. We've learned a few things about site speed hosting Drupal sites on shared hosting over the years and we'd like to share that knowledge. We'll cover things like:

Out of the box cacheing
Other fun Drupal cacheing modules
3rd party services like CloudFlare
Apache stuff like Mod Deflate
