About High Performance Drupal

What is the High Performance Drupal meetup about? The "high performance" part of the name is a catch-all to describe Drupal scalability, performance and benchmarking but we also discuss hosting, infrastructure, deployment, monitoring and highly repeatable processes. Also, this meetup has been held at coffeeshops in the past and the addition of caffeine makes our meetings feel as if they go faster and faster as the night goes on.

This is an meetup that focuses exclusively on advanced topics and there will not be a Users Helping Users portion to the evening.

This meetup features a presentation by Kevin Colligan (@kevincolligan) at The Recording Academy @TRAlosangeles, who will present a case study on GRAMMY.com. He will go through the setup used for GRAMMY.com now to keep it fast and stable — Pressflow and Master/Slave databases, Drupal's built-in cache mechanisms, Akamai and Content Delivery Networks, Varnish load balancing and reverse proxies, Memcache and other tricks — and what they're looking at for the future.

Event type: 
User group meeting

As many of you know, the High Performance Drupal meetup we started 9 months ago is looking for a larger venue. After bouncing around Westside venues for a while, we've hunkered down at the Venice Grind coffeeshop, made it a regular, monthly meetup and put a call out for help with finding a new venue.

Gavin from the Downtown LA Drupal meetup last week has invited us to check out his space at Filter Digital in Culver City as a possible venue. Would anyone like to go there for a site visit tomorrow at 1pm?

In the tradition of other site visits that we've gone on, this visit to open to anyone interested in helping with our upcoming events!
