On the QuickerWP blog there's a new post with some recommendations of plugins and techniques you can use to make your WordPress blog "fly" (increase the overall performance). WordPress sites are notorious for their poor loading times. The platform itself comes with very few optimizations, and once you start adding plugins, things will only go south from there. [...] Most of the performance penalties actually come from having too many plugins installed, a poorly optimized site configuration, and a theme that does not optimize loading speeds (most of them don't). [...] It's rare to see high marks [on Yellow Lab Tools] (a B or A result), but after applying the tweaks listed here, we've managed to get our own site to score an A (92/100) result, and surprisingly low loading times. Try it on your site to see how you fare. They have a list of seven recommendations: Autoptimize plugin WP Fastest Cache plugin PurifyCSS TinyPNG plugin Guetzli (for image optimization) CSS Sprites QuickerWP Each item in the list comes with a brief description of the enhancement it brings to the table and links to find out more information.
What comes first? The chicken or the egg? The website or the content? Developing a cohesive content strategy during the web design process can present quite the conundrum. Designers want content to start work on the design, while many copywriters want a preview of the visuals to develop content. So how do you come to […]
On his Medium.com blog Liam Hammett has written up a tutorial explaining the functionality and use of bitmask constant arguments in PHP. PHP has a handful of core functions that can accept boolean arguments in the form of constants that have a binary value. These can be combined together in a single function argument, essentially passing multiple boolean flags in a very compact manner. They work a bit differently to how most people implement options in their userland functions, so let's take a look at how they work. He starts off by talking about how the PHP core language makes use of them in certain functions with an example of the JSON_THROW_ON_ERROR constant for use with json_encode (both as a single option and multiple using a bitwise operator). He then gets into the "code behind the code" and talk about how they work for both "OR" and "AND" types. He ends the post with an example putting all of this knowledge to use in an if that detects if a bit exists in the inputted constant list.

On his site Brendt has shared some of his thoughts about why he sees the service locator design pattern as an anti-pattern and harmful to your overall application. As a Laravel developer, I'm confronted daily with the service locator pattern. Every facade call and several helper functions are built upon it. [...] During a discussion with my colleagues, I found it difficult to put into words what exactly is wrong with grabbing things out of the container - a service locator - so I decided to write my thoughts down, with an example. [...] I want to highlight three problems with this approach, directly caused by the use of a service locator. He goes through a list of where he sees the use of the service locator functionality causing problems including: getting runtime instead of compile-time errors obfuscation of actual functionality increased cognitive load He ends the post with a quick suggestion on how to solve the issue: use actual dependency injection instead of "magic" locators.
