Drupalcafe February - Theme: Drupal performance

  • February 20, 2014 · 5:00 PM
  • One Shoe

During Drupalcafé February we'll address a topic, which probably becomes a point of attention in one form or another for every Drupal developer. The topic is; performance. Also, we'll be giving an update about DrupalCon.

We'll be giving attention to 2 forms of performance; (page load) speed and stress handling. The impact of both back-end (architecture) and front-end (theming) choices on these types of performance will be discussed.  

The programme for this evening will be;

• 17.00 doors open

• 17.15 opening by Baris Wanschers and Antje Lorch. Baris and Antje will give an update with regards to the upcoming DrupalCon in Amsterdam. 

• 17.30 presentation #1:  Grunting with Drupal. Ide Braakman of One Shoe will demonstrate how to speed up your Drupal theme development with Grunt. Grunt is an automated task runner designed to make your life as a developer easier. In this session we show you some practical examples of how you can use Grunt to speed up your theme development and its performance.

• 18.15 break

• 18.30 presentation #2:  Back-end development. Robin Celie of One Shoe will dive into various performance aspects of Drupal development. Topics like Memcache, APC, Boost and Entity Cache will be discussed. If time allows, we'll also shed light on server-side optimizations such as Varnish and Load Balancing.

• 19.00 drinks

• 20.00 end

    This was my first meetup of this group, and I liked it a lot. Good topics and lots of technical tips I will use in my own projects.

    Can't make it. Will it be possible to view the presentations afterwards?

      Hi Dick too bad. We're expecting more live demo's than slides, but if there's anything to share online afterward, we will.

      It seems there were slides to share. We'll get to that tomorrow!

    Toch even terugkomend op het parkeren: Hoe zit dat bij One Shoe? De site zegt daar iig niks over.
    Anders parkeer ik net zo goed bij ons kantoor in Utrecht en loop ik 1.3 km (volgens Google Maps).

      ik ben er al. er is nog 1 parkeerplek vrij bij oneshoe.

    • Tibor U.

      Hallo allemaal, mijn excuses, maar het is niet de bedoeling dat er bij ons wordt geparkeerd.

    Vraagje, ik moet uit Limburg komen, dus rij tegen de file in. Is het daar een beetje makkelijk parkeren, of is de trein + 2 haltes bus aan te raden?

      OV is eenvoudig. Zelfs prima te lopen vanaf CS (max 10 minuten).

      Er is een treinstoring tussen Geldermalsen en Utrecht, dus het wordt toch de auto.

    Unfortunately, personal life got in the way. Looks really interesting again, if any presentation should find its way online i would be very grateful!

      It won't be the same without you. We're expecting more live demo's than slides, but if there's anything to share online afterward, we will.
