Get Peak WordPress Performance with Jetpack

The irony of web performance is that the average page weight of a site continues to go up year after year, despite us being more aware of the problem and having more tools at our disposal to fight it than ever.
To paraphrase Seinfeld, “we know how to fight page weight issues; we just don’t use the tools we have to fight page weight issues."

That’s why Jetpack provides powerful features for all users at any plan level. They … Read article

So, you think you’ve got project management nailed down

(This is a sponsored post.)
Who needs a project manager? You’re an organized person who can keep track of your own work, right?

Case in point: what happens if your project relies on someone else’s involvement? Sure you’re organized, but can you always say the same about your co-workers? Chances are you need … Read article

CSS-Tricks on Flywheel

I first heard of Flywheel through their product Local, which is a native app for working on WordPress sites. If you ask around for what people use for that kind of work, you’ll get all sorts of answers, but an awful lot of very strong recommendations for Local. I’ve become one of them! We ultimately did a sponsored post for Local, but that’s based on the fact that now 100% of my local WordPress development work is done using … Read article

Using Percy to add visual testing to a Jekyll site

Visual testing is the automated process of reviewing software from a purely visual standpoint. Instead of testing the code underneath, visual testing is all about what end users actually see and interact with.
Similar to functional testing, however, visual testing fits directly into your stack and workflow. And with Percy, it’s easy to add snapshots to and run visual reviews for anything that runs in a browser.

Let’s set up an app to test
In this tutorial, we’re going … Read article

If you can build a site with WordPress.com, you should build your site on WordPress.com.

That’s what I like to tell people. I’ve seen too many websites die off, often damaging the company along the way because the technical debt of hosting and maintaining the website is too much in the long term. For a few examples, there is the domain name itself to handle and the tricky DNS settings to go along with it. There is choosing and setting up web hosting, which often requires more long-term maintenance than many folks would like. There … Read article
