Session Description: 

Managing News is an example of a resource-demanding Drupal-based application that pushes some of Drupal’s limits as well as the stack (LAMP) that Drupal runs on. We’ll use Managing News as an example of what you can do with Drupal, what you can run into in terms of resource-usage along the way, and seek to have a discussion with others running into similar resource utilization areas and what people have done and plan to do to squeeze performance out of Drupal in their specific applications.

Birds of a feather

* Demo of Managing News
* Explanation of bottlenecks
* Explanation of some approaches to improve performance and resource utilization
* Share similar stories

Learn about more specific performance utilization practices from real examples, find common areas to share notes and discuss where things could go in the future.

It is good to be familiar with performance tuning, or if you have performance problems yourself you can learn about a few approaches for this session.
