Finally, I am happy to inform you that I am working on reports for this event where I’ll be a speaker and representative of RoundTheme club (the club is an official JoomlaDay sponsor). So, I’ll present two reports:

First report: Website speed up and optimization

The loading speed of a website and quick page generation play a crucial role in the behavioral factors and, as a result, act the search result and bounce rate since slow loading website causes the irritation especially if you’re using mobile device to view a site. As a result of performed tasks, we can achieve a significant increase in web-site downloading and higher generation speed of web-site pages, that will have a positive effect on the usability and SEO.

Carrying out works can be divided at the following stages:

1. Site audit

Preliminary examination of site front-end and determination of used extensions, version of CMS, amount of queries within the page in debug mode and analysis of the information. Detailed audit and preparation a plan for further works.

2. Extensions configuration and set up

According the results of audit we’re determining appropriateness of usage of existing 3rd party extensions or looking for alternative solution that optimally meets the required tasks.

3. Work with scripts

Script conflicts and issues fixing and removing the loading of unnecessary / duplicated libraries. Disabling all non-used scripts, reducing the size of files, script compression and re-compression of graphic elements.

4. Server and hosting

Hosting loading speed analysis. Moving site out to another much quicker and more reliable hosting if it is needed or moving in cloud hosting. Server configuration.

Approaching each stage may be different depending on each particular site which is determined on the first step (analysis). It’s possible to get a very good site speed up and improve pages loading speed and generation as a result of the completed work that will positively impact at site usability, SEO and search results.

Second report: Making membership access and subscription plans for website

This report is dedicated to the auditory of developers who need to organize paid access to site sections and get monetization with membership and subscription. It might be useful if you’re going to create a club, support service or commercial video lessons. At the example of PayPlans we’ll meet with common principles of organization of such features. PayPlans have lots of useful and flexible settings as well as more than 100 3rd party extensions for integration that makes the component just universal tool for making membership within website. The report is divided at two parts:

  1. Features overview. A short brief of PayPlans features and some of it 3rd party extensions.
  2. Making membership for website easy.

Practical realization of site membership and plans based on typical example. The report will be interesting for developers since it meets common concept about practical realization of pricing plans and membership that might be used in different situations from a small website with commercial consultation to video lessons service or a club.

I am happy to present these reports and share my experience with event visitors.
