Last week brought two episodes with Mike Carper talking about Drupal Performance. This week brings one more performance episode, this time with Khalid, then another special Wednesday episode to talk about the User Points module. (Don't get used to two episodes a week... It's just a fluke that it happened twice in a row! ;-p)

Khalid works for 2bits consulting on Drupal performance.
Some things he talks about include:

  • Who needs these services
  • Diagnosis before Treatment, no guess work
  • The Contributed Module Open Buffet Binge syndrome
  • Cloud, Amazon AWS and cost vs. performance
  • Complexity is a disease
  • Performance Assessment service (full and targeted)
  • Install/Configure/Tune your server
  • Hosting for performance
  • 3.4 million page views per day on a single server
