    1. Don't use ready-made themes, write your own. Don't use plugins, write your own logic into your custom theme. Also turn off Gutenberg.
    2. Don't call wp_head() and wp_footer() (that's where WP loads tons of bloat)
    3. Separate logic from view templates (use a templating engine like twig)

    +1 bonus: go MVC with TypeRocket

    Please don’t aspire to be a Wordpress developer. Wordpress is an abomination to Software Engineering
