Friends, unfortunately we have to push the date for this meetup back by two weeks. A big site migration at my company has been rescheduled to the same evening and I've got to be there.
New date: Wednesday May 8th at 7:00pm at the OR offices in SoDo.
I do have a theme for the evening: ExpressionEngine Performance!
Talk 1: Walk through several caching solutions and benchmark several for comparison. Use of EE native caching and the CE Cache extension with several backends: File, DB, Memcache, APC, Redis and also installing Varnish reverse-proxy cache in front of EE. If you build anything more than a small billboard site on EE, then understanding how to make sites fly will be very beneficial to your business.
Talk 2: Still waiting on confirmation, but looks like we'll have a demo of a fantastic and comprehensive tool for performance monitoring. Even if you are not in a heavily technical or sysadmin role, this is digestible information and exposure to a slick web UI.
Its time for another EE Meetup! With Matt being a little busy these days I'll put together our next event. My name is Jimmy Fursman and I am the Web Development Manager at Outdoor Research. We're an outdoor apparel manufacturer that uses EE as a platform for several of our sites, as well as Magento for our E-Commerce platform. You can reach me at [masked] with any ideas or feedback.
This event will take place at the Outdoor Research corporate offices at[masked]st Ave South in SoDo. 6th Floor Cafeteria is right off the elevator.
Punch and Pie.
