We have proposed a session for DrupalCon Washington DC 2009. The topic is one that is dear to our hearts and a common : Backend Drupal performance optimization and tuning: a guide for everyone.
A while ago, we announced the performance logging and monitoring module for Drupal.
As you can see from the comments on that page, it was suggested that the module be included with Devel. We did not give it much thought then, until today, Moshe gave the final nudge, and we did the intergration today.
Along with this integration, we have the following fixes and features:
the Wikimedia Foundation has decided to standardize their infrastructure on Ubuntu Server 8.04 LTS. This means that 400 servers running Wikipedia will eventually be moved to Ubuntu, instead of having a mix of distributions.
We have been using and advocating the relatively under-advertised Ubuntu Server for several years, both for in house development and testing, as well as for client web sites, large and small.
We have been extremely happy with Ubuntu, for the following reasons.
Today, Khalid gave a presentation at the Drupal Users Group of Waterloo Region on Uisng CCK, Views and Panels to build Drupal web sites, with minimal programming.
Here are the slides from the presentation, in PDF format.
She gave the same well attended talk she did at Drupal Camp Toronto 2008 on How to port your content from * to Drupal.
In total, 16 people attended, the record so far, and impressive for a Drupal Users Group that has only been in existence for only 4 months.
On Friday and Saturday May 23 and 24, 2008, both Khalid and Wafaa attended DrupalCamp Toronto.
In addition to the Drupal Performance Optimization for large web sites talk, Khalid presented the Drupal for Fun and Profit talk on how to make a career in Open Source. It was well received, and we hope it inspires some to take the plunge in the Drupal ecosystem, which is aptly described in the talk, with interesting pictures.
Drupal Camp Toronto 2008 is on this coming Friday and Saturday. Two days of fund, good food, geekiness, and yes, a lot of Drupalisms.
I will be presenting a session there, and having another Birds of a Feather on Performance and Scalability.
