Most advice to improve Drupal site performance is aimed at developers and DevOps folks. In reality, many Drupal sites are built by site builders using flexible Drupal modules rather than custom code.

In this blog series, we will give site builders the knowledge and tools to enhance the performance of their web sites, without ever touching PHP or the command line.

The Drupal community is already rich in modules and best practices that can significantly improve the performance of any Drupal site. Now it’s time to take advantage of the community’s hard work!
