Thanks so much for hanging with me at WordCamp and talking about speed! Below you’ll find everything I mentioned during our session.
If I missed anything, please get in touch and let me know so I can add it here.
One more thing – I’d be grateful if you’d let me know what you got out of the presentation and whether there was anything I could add or take away to make it more helpful in case I do this again.
