The power of Edge Side Includes
A CMS needs to serve content to visitors quickly, regardless of their location. No mean feat! Squiz Edge, a geographically distributed content delivery and caching network, was created to meet this challenge. Edge comes with a technology called Edge Side Includes (ESI) which enable the assembly and delivery of dynamic content.With ESI in place, you will massively improve your site's cache-ability and reduce response times.
Jason Choi, Technical Consultant Team Lead at Squiz will overview the Squiz Edge network as well as reusable ESI fragments, variables and conditions.
Working with ESI is one of the Fantastic Mr Choi's many talents. One minute he's whipping up a Marketo instance and the next he's mapping out a plan to transform content from one website to another. All the while, he keeps the office supplied with Tic Tacs. Come along for the Tic Tacs, and stay to hear more about:
- ESI reusable fragments
- ESI vars
- ESI geolocation detection
- ESI conditional statements
About our Developer Community
Our cross-functional group catches up each quarter to talk about all things digital. Come along, and you’ll meet fellow developers, experience designers, solution architects, IT project managers, content and communication strategists - all keen to share their personal views on where we’re headed.
Bring a problem you’ve been working on or raise a concept you’re keen to explore. Our meetup is all about supporting a digital-first Queensland; making sure each one of us has the tools and confidence to thrive.
In the Squiz way - we’ll encourage you to delve into not only the ‘what’, but the ‘why’. Together, we’ll try to find better ways of doing things.
Most importantly, you need to know that we don’t take ourselves too seriously. Outside of UX and dev, there’s not much we enjoy more than a good laugh and a chat with like-minded people.
