HTML, CSS3, MYSQL versions 4 & 5, PHP
Project Description / Challenge
This trio of sites was slow, slow, slow. Heavy on photos, data overload and slow data queries resulted in upward of 90+ seconds load time for some pages.
Firstly, we updated versions of MYSQL from Version 4 to Version 5. Then, database optimization increased website load time significantly. Specifically, our task was to find the logic that divided any query into small parts, keep all important information and then condense data into fast packets which then joined with PHP. The result was a smaller database load and increase in overall site speed.
How we worked with the client
Being in charge of design update and implementation requires constant check-ins with a client. In addition to working on daily website bug fixes (in nearly real-time), we also reported and communicated features which were not working on this site. Adding our input and optimizing any site to work at its highest potential is simply what we do.Back to portfolio
