The Drupal community is exploding! I’ve had the pleasure to speak at two nascent Drupal camps (New Jersey and Maryland) in as many weeks.

Today I gave a revamped version of my “Coat Your Website with Varnish” session at DrupalCamp MD. I updated some of the information about Drupal configuration and an overview section going over some of the basics of headers and caching.

The entire presentation is embedded below and is also available on

In addition, if you’d like to get hands-on experience with a number of techniques to make your Drupal site perform like a champion, I’m honored to be co-presenting the Drupal Performance and Scalability training alongside Mark Sonnabaum from Acquia and Nate Haug from Lullabot!

See you in Denver, and until then, Varnish all the things!
