Speeding up Joomla

If you run a Joomla site, then you really need this week's new video class from Rod Martin called "Speeding up Joomla".

Rod starts by showing that a normal Joomla site is not highly-optimized and then he takes you through 10 steps to improve your site speed.

First, you'll learn to use Google PageSpeed and YSlow to test your site. Then Rod shows you how to use caching, compression, .htaccess, CDNs and more. By the time you've finished this class, you'll have a blazing fast Joomla site!
