Welcome to our complete, free beginner class on speeding up your Drupal 8 site. This class was created by the team at http://OSTraining.com and made possible through the sponsorship of http://InMotionHosting.com.
In this class Robert shows you how to ensure your Drupal 8 sites load as quickly as possible. We're going to take a look at the performance boosting features available in Drupal 8.
In this video Robert explains Drupal's cache system. The cache stores a copy of requested pages in an easily accessible location.
Let's dig into a Drupal 8 site and examine the performance related settings. We're going to look at the Internal Dynamic: Page Cache and the Internal Page Cache modules.
We'll take a look now at Drupal 8's performance settings that you'll find under Configuration, then Development. You'll see caching and aggregation as important options.
If you're developing a theme or module, caching can be a pain because you won't see your changes immediately. In this video, Robert shows you how to disable the cache for development.
In this video, we show you how to control the size of your uploaded images. Did you know that Drupal ships with image manipulation options that allow you to control the quality of your images?
One thing you can do speed up your Drupal site is to remove all the modules that aren't being used. Every module will add a performance hit to your site.
