Google makes it harder and harder to pass Core Web Vitals with vanilla content management systems (CMS). What if we could combine the world of custom development while still having a CMS that non-developers could use to add content? What if your WordPress site could be developed and maintained through normal software development practices using continuous integration? Wouldn't this make a great future? What if I told you the future is here!?!? This session will walk you through the multiple recipes and processes of building a site that utilizes a content management system, including WordPress to build sites that are fast, secure, and scalable. You will learn about some tools that you can utilize and learn from some of our mistakes in building these sites. The session will end with a demo of utilizing some of these tools.
