WordCamp Europe 2017 is getting closer and closer. From 15 to 17 June, over 3000 WordPress lovers are expected in Paris. And you can be there. Secure one of five tickets for the biggest WordPress event in Europe with RAIDBOXES today.
When it comes to WordPress security, there are a few myths. One of them is that small sites with low range and without databases full of sensitive data are not relevant targets for hacker attacks. A dangerous fallacy. Because the sheer proliferation of WordPress makes WP sites particularly interesting as targets. No matter how big or "important" site is. We show you why you should always be concerned about the security of your WordPress sites and how hackers basically proceed.
The regular tickets for WordCamp Europe 2017 in Paris are officially sold out. But even if you can't be there, you don't have to miss any of the great sessions: Again this year, the WCEU organizers are giving away almost 3000 free streaming ticketsto make the event accessible for every WordPress -lover worldwide. This way you can watch all the sessions of the biggest WordPress event ever, live even if you can't be there in Paris.
What is actually fast?
Long loading times are a real mood killer. However, what is really perceived as fast or slow by website visitors is what the study SpeedPerception is trying to find out. This is a crowdsourcing project that looks at the perception of loading speeds of above-the-fold content. The goal of the study is to provide the web performance community with a data set and a corresponding analysis as a benchmark for future studies of loading time perception.
According to the study, the perspective of the research is special because it focuses on the visual user experience rather than traditional metrics such as 'Time to First Byte'. Participants in the SpeedPerception Challenge are presented with two videos of page loads and rate which one they perceive as faster. We're excited to see the results.
