Performance on the Wire: Improving website speed for everyone

Ryan Weal

This talk will introduce you to “full-stack” performance tuning: from the front-end content rendered by Drupal to the network that your sites are running on. We will show examples of performance gains by making simple adjustments to DNS, network location, Drupal configuration, reverse proxies and caching strategies. If you have ever wondered how the big Drupal hosting companies achieve performance gains when compared to most self-hosting configurations this talk will answer those questions and give you the tools to do it yourself.
