AMP is Google’s collection of plug-and-play code that helps optimize sites to load and run faster. It works, but its use is controversial, and there are many good reasons you might consider handling optimization yourself. AMP undoubtedly does a great job in speeding up sites, but you can achieve results just as well, if not better, under your own steam if you know how to go about it.
In this course we’ll be taking an existing AMP-based site and converting it to use non-AMP equivalents, giving you methods to make your sites run blazing fast, but where the optimization techniques are those you decide on for yourself.
So let’s go ahead and “Optimize Your Website Without AMP“!

1.1 Welcome to the Course!
AMP is Google's set of plug and play code that helps optimize sites and make them load and run faster. And it undoubtedly does a great job in speeding up sites, but you can achieve results just as good if not better under your own steam if you know how to go about it. There are actually a lot of excellent perks that you can only take advantage of if you handle optimization yourself. Not least of which, is when you have full control over your optimization methods, you in turn, have full control over your sites, and how they're being developed. In this course, we're gonna be taking an existing AMP based site, one that we made in another course on using AMP and we're gonna convert it into a non-AMP website using non-AMP equivalent optimization techniques. So through this conversion process, you're gonna learn methods that you can use to make your sites run blazing fast, but where those optimization techniques are ultimately those you decide on for yourself. So let's go ahead and optimize your website without AMP. I'll see you in the first lesson.
