Performance has become a major factor of web development and application development for the modern web. According to Google, their search index algorithms use page load times as one of over 100 factors they use to rank their search engine results. Web developers that have already been focusing on server performance and faster page load times have the early advantage.
I work on optimizing web server performance and optimizing website performance as one of my responsibilities as the Systems Engineer at Zivtech in Center City, Philadelphia. Many of the tools I use are open source and free to use, but some might not be as easy to use as others. This section of my DevOps Resources will be focusing on how you can optimize your website for performance and if needed optimize your web server performance to help speed up your website.
