Tips on how to reduce the carbon emissions of your WordPress website

Did you know that the internet is thought to produce about the same carbon emissions as the aviation industry? And if the internet was a country it would be the sixth biggest polluter in the world. Shocking isn’t it?

With nearly 35% of all websites being WordPress websites, as a community, we have a fantastic opportunity to play a role in reducing emissions and spreading awareness of the impact of our online habits.

In this talk, we’ll understand how to measure the carbon emissions of your website. We’ll look at techniques you can use to lessen your impact, whether you are responsible for their creation in some way as a developer, designer or content creator. Not only will these techniques help your green credentials, but you will also produce faster-loading sites that your visitors and search engines will love.

Nine ways to make WordPress better with AI

When we think about AI, it’s hard to tell hype from a genuine utility. In reality, AI is a bundle of over 25 different technologies, ranging from the ‘everyday’ to the cutting edge.

This talk uses the blade of WordPress to slice through the hype and focus on practical, achievable ways to start leveraging AI technologies into your WordPress tech stack today.

Today we see the primary use cases falling into three silos: AI Enhancement, Improved Productivity and Data, Analytics and Intelligence. In his session, David will break these silos down into three practical examples each – using a range of solutions and services.

How I improved my sleep patterns with WordPress

The landscape of computing always changes, at the beginning webservers were found in the basements of companies, then in data centres, along came virtualisation and now cloud or serverless. A factual history but a boring discussion.

As a pioneer of high availability websites for Sport including the Olympics, from a server in a house in Orlando in 2002, Sotic has lived through this time and has the war stories to tell. But what do these changes mean from a personal perspective, how does migrating improve employee wellbeing, reduce stress and enable a better environment for the company. What cost do these changes bring and why has WordPress played an integral part in our journey?

I will cover the migration Sotic took from our own hosting platform using another CMS to running WP on Cloud. The ups and downs, pain and sleepless nights and why some of the lessons learnt are as relevant for single agency owners using shared hosting to big multination WP sites.

I’ll talk about the positive reasons to find the right place to host your WP website. Why making the change has improved my staff wellbeing, their productivity and customer satisfaction. How WP helped and just by looking at this video you can see that the WP site (Six Nations) is faster than many others:
