Performance & Scaling Summit

Learn and share at one of DrupalCon's many industry and topic-focused summits. Summits are typically day-long, separately ticketed events, but for DrupalCon Global they have been shortened and incorporated within the main conference programming. Come for medley of short presentations and discussion, at no extra charge.

Join us on a journey to make Drupal websites faster and better able to perform at scale! Learn from industry experts coming from the agencies, hosting companies, and other organizations bringing trusted experience. Together we'll cover application-level performance, front-end optimization, hosting/CDN considerations, testing at scale, and many other performance topics that have prevented your projects from being as performant as possible.
