Drupal is a fantastic CMS, but it can be slow if the site is complex or hosted on a slow server. In this class, Robert helps us understand how to get the most out of Drupal without sacrificing speed.
Robert will help you understand of how Drupal renders nodes. He'll also some of the caching power of Drupal, and a couple of great modules to help speed up your site.
Robert learned HTML/CSS back in 2008 when he decided to start a film review site, and he continued adding to his site file-by-file the old-fashioned way for a year. When he asked a web developer friend how to build a site that "automatically lists content on the homepage and stuff," he was pointed to Drupal.
Since then, Robert has continued to build his experience with the CMS by using it on his own projects and by managing other brands' pre-existing Drupal sites. In doing so, he has learned some of the best ways to use the tools Drupal has available--and what mistakes to avoid.
In his spare time, Robert trains Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and works on too many side programming projects. He is also the author of two books.
