At DrupalCon Amsterdam 2019 I presented a session about capacity planning. In this session I explain how to solve a couple of recurring problems: Site Launch and User expectations Based on these aspects I share some good practice stories, by answering questions, like: - How to create a good capacity plan? - How to forecast resource needs and make it sustainable? - How to automate that process?

Here is a neat set of videos ilustrating how the BBS system worked. People were excited by the possibility of "one day" everyone could be meeting online. If you would say something like that in the 80's, you wouldn't get many friends. Now it looks like the way you MEET your FRIENDS and guess what... they are not nerds. Today we have Internet users...

Our kids don't even know of a world without Internet, but BBS played a very important role on terraforming the future:

People around the world cheered yesterday morning (Feb. 11) when scientists announced the first direct detection of gravitational waves — ripples in the fabric of space-time whose existence was first proposed by Albert Einstein, in 1916. The waves came from two black holes circling each other, closer and closer, until they finally collided. The recently upgraded Large Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO) captured the signal on Sept. 14, 2015. Not every scientific discovery gets this kind of reception, so what exactly is all the hype about, and what's next for LIGO now that it has spotted these elusive waves?


Drupal project is moving it's repo to git. Git has the best version control and workflow for big communities and developers. Git is to be embraced by the Drupal community and taken to the core of things. I already moved all code from our repos into git also.
