YOUR HELP NEEDED: DrupalCon LA 2015 Tourist Wiki

People visiting our city to attend DrupalCon Los Angeles (May 11-15, 2015) will need to know how to get around L.A., and what there is to do outside of the conference. There will be social events each night of the conference, but not every drinks or dances or will only be enjoying our city at night so some daytime activities and family friendly points of interest should be compiled in this wiki.

How to find a local Drupal tutor

Hi, I posted on a few freelance sites and also on the Drupal job board but I have been advised to post in the Drupal LA group because I would ideally like to find someone in Los Angeles to meet with me in person. I don't see a great place to categorize what I am looking for, does anyone have suggestions on how I could find a drupal tutor to work with me a few hours a week?

No Burbank study group meetup tomorrow

I don't want to spam the crap out of g.d.o (I just posted in the events section about this already), but I also want to make as sure as possibly no one makes a trip to Burbank expecting a meetup tomorrow and comes away sad. We have a lot of people out of town and indisposed this month, so there will be no study groupal tomorrow. We'll see everyone next month, but take this one off!

Performance Improvement via Proxies

As mentioned in a previous post, I am having performance issues with a site I manage, One person has (forcibly) suggested using Squid as a reverse-proxy to improve performance. I have not heard that discussed in any Drupal meeting. I hear Varnish.

I have researched the web on both proxies and have found a lot of useful information, but (at least so far) not answers to these questions.

  • Does anyone have experience with both?
  • Are there any specific recommendations or concerns with using either?

Site Performance is Poor

I remember there were high-performance meetups a while ago. I don't see the group so I'm asking LA Drupal. I will be at the meeting tonight if you wish to discuss then.

The site is used world-wide in a shared-hosting environment, but there is little else on the server. It runs Drupal 7 (last updated in December). Sporadically it receives a large number of requests from IP addresses all around the world. Some of the requests are from bots that appear to honor the 'Crawl-delay' of 60 seconds. A (very) few do not.
