One Shoe | 17 jan 2014

During Drupalcafé February the 20th we'll address a topic, which probably becomes a point of attention in one form or another for every Drupal developer. The topic is; Drupal performance. We'll be giving attention to 2 forms of Drupal performance; (page load) speed and stress handling. The impact of both back-end (architecture) and front-end (theming) choices on these types of performance will be discussed. 

The programme for this evening will be;

  • 17.00 doors open
  • 17.30 presentation #1: Grunting with Drupal. Ide Braakman of One Shoe will demonstrate how to speed up your Drupal theme development with Grunt. Grunt is an automated task runner designed to make your life as a developer easier. In this session we show you some practical examples of how you can use Grunt to speed up your theme development and it's performance.
  • 18.15 break
  • 18.30 presentation #2: Back-end development. Robin Celie of One Shoe will dive into various performance aspects of Drupal development.
