Drupal Camp Cape Town 2016 – Fast websites for all of us

fastwebsitesforallofus

I was invited to Drupal Camp Cape Town to present on a topic which is very dear to me: “Fast websites for everyone” I was covering  principles or issues which need to be addressed in order to get sites as quickly as possible to the user.

My personal thanks go to the Team behind Drupal Camp Cape Town. It was amazing to be part of it and I loved the relaxed location and the many discussions with the people I met throughout the day.

Looking back

Looking back at my session and the overall impression on this years DrupalCon I’m more than satisfied. The whole team did a really great job in organizing the conference and the Programme was good. I’m also looking forward to team up with fellow DevOps Ricardo Amaro to have a look back and decide what we could improve for future DrupalCons and lift the DevOps Track to the next level. One thing which I was missing was the “Current State of Drupal DevOps” Session by Kris, but I plan to run that as a BOF in future to facilitate the Discussion.

At the Drupal Dev Days Montpellier I got the oportunity to speak in the DevOps Track and talk a about the ELK Stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana). It’s impressive to see what Elastic.co (formerly ElasticSearch) progresses into their products with every release.

If you are interested in the slides feel free to download them here (PDF) or enjoy them on Speakerdeck.

A special thank you goes out to the organizer team of the DrupalDevDays team in Montpellier for having me on stage and organizing such a nice event!

Resources

Here are some of the resources I personally find most useful for starting with ELK Stack:
Logstash Book
Elasticsearch the Definitive Guide
Grok Debugger
