I haven’t given a talk at my own meet-up for a while so I thought I’d schedule myself in. Talking about the carbon emissions of the internet is a conversation I’d like us all to be having a lot more of at the moment. Here’s the talk synopsis which is the same talk I gave at the Swedish Internet Days conference:
My talk will be cover how to understand the carbon emissions of your website and its impact on the environment. We’ll look at techniques you can use to lessen your impact, particularly if you are a custom theme developer.
We will discuss how to reduce your page load size by looking at ways to compress images and serve them up efficiently. We will also look at techniques for optimising your code base through minification and tracking down unused code. Not only will these techniques help your green credentials, you will also produce faster loading sites that your visitors and search engines will love.

Bristol WordPress knocked it out of the park with their last meetup of 2019. A great talk from @hanopcan and some really interesting questions afterwards. Now to slip into a mince pie coma until the new year! #bristolwp

Thank you Hannah Smith for a brilliant talk about the impact of #internet usage on #carbon emissions and how to reduce the emissions of your #Wordpress site. As Hannah said, this is something we all need to start talking about more and there are things we can do! #wpBristol https://t.co/rVSwUgdYXV
