When going live with a big project, it is all about reassuring the client that the project will be able to handle all those excited visitors. To achieve that state of zen, it is paramount that you do a load test. The benefits of load tests go beyond peace of mind, however. For example, it enables you to spot issues that only happen during high load or let’s you spot bottlenecks in the infrastructure setup. The added bonus is that you can bask in the glory of your high-performance code - on the condition the test doesn’t fail, of course.

Thanks to Dropsolid, I had the chance to attend my second DrupalCon, which took place in Vienna. While there, I participated in my first (Drupal) sprint ever. During the sprint I learned a lot of things and - luckily - also had fun at the same time. In this blog post, I’m going to share the things I’ve learned and with which hope to inspire you to participate in a Drupal sprint some time yourself.

I will be talking about the following things:

A month ago I received the honour to present at DrupalJam 2017. What a wonderful event! I had been invited to talk about deploying Drupal 8 onto kubernetes, which can be found as a hosted service in Google Cloud.
