Santa Cruz

The Santa Cruz Drupal User's Group is looking to connect Drupal users in and around Santa Cruz, California.

We have a budding tech community in Santa Cruz. One factor in our tech growth is the use of Drupal at several local web shops, start-ups, and organizations. Drupal use at UC Santa Cruz is also growing and it's time we all got together to share knowledge and learn from each other.

We (almost always) meet on the first Tuesday of each month, at 7pm. Meetings are free and held at NextSpace at 101 Cooper Street in downtown Santa Cruz. All are welcome. Ring the buzzer to get let into the building.

Note - If the meeting day falls on a holiday or during the winter holidays (e.g. January), then we might reschedule or cancel the meeting but there will be a discussion or event here for it.

Hi all,

It's that time again... we'll be meeting next Tuesday night from 7 to 9pm at Nextspace.

Darryl Norris has suggested some topics:

https://groups.drupal.org/node/510283

Any of those sound good? The first 2 he already has prepared so would be easy for him to give next week.

Also, I would like to go over my slides for my DrupalCon sessions if possible. I do not need to do a presentation but am looking for feedback on the slides.

    User group meeting

    Dan Harris and Heron Heron Ordoñez of Nvidia are available to present our notes at the April 5th meeting on how we were able to achieve a complex Drupal 6 to 7 migration with roughly two minutes of website downtime. These concepts should apply to any D2D migration.

    We'd be covering the migration from both a Drupal standpoint, and what was needed on the server side to achieve this near 100% automation. The Drupal 7 site architecture was built from scratch during the migration process using a script and features/custom modules. We'd also be discussing how to use multithreading with Drupal.

    Looking for Drupal scaling & memcache expertise

    productOps is looking for some help on a large-scale Drupal app we're managing. We're seeing massive DB connection spikes periodically, coincident with a lot of memcache evictions and a slowdown in memcache performance, which ultimately leads to sporadic outages that require human intervention to back off connections to the Database.

    If you know someone with deep experience with memcache or issues related to scaling Drupal, I'd appreciate a referral. Thanks!
