You might have seen many tutorials on WP Speed Optimization and some of them probably worked for you. I am going to present a guide which works for me.
This guide will handle following aspects of speed optimization
- Static asset minification & combination
- Redis (Object Caching)
- Image Optimization
- Google Page Speed
- Optimization Don'ts

In this section, lets talk about CSS, JS and HTML combination and minification.
At this point, you have an option to use either an all in one plugin like W3 Total Cache or WP Rocket. But they are bloated in my opinion. Lets use one simple plugin for our use case - https://wordpress.org/plugins/autoptimize/
