In my previous post, I gave an overview of a high performance caching setup that facilitated SSL everywhere. This is important because one of the most widely used reverse-proxy caches for Drupal sites is Varnish, which doesn't support SSL termination on its own. Since that post, I gave a presentation at DrupalCamp NJ 2013. I presented the analogy I had developed previously and expanded on it. I prepared a demo in which I had a three server setup.

Much has been written on how to use the Drupal Views module effectively, but less on how to use it like a perfectionist professional. I started the following checklist for my team to level up everyone's pre- ticket review quality, but it can be useful for any Views builders.

Getting Started

On every site, run drush vd to turn the Views settings to the advanced mode.

We have a joke at Zivtech that PHP typecasting bites someone at least once a week. Though to be fair, that someone is usually me. Others seem less affected, but it remains a problem. I find that as I become a better programmer, typecasting becomes more annoying. My problem seems partially related to my attempt to write better code, which I find humorous. I just want functions and APIs that return consistent, sane values.

Part of the reason I love Drupal is that it treats everyone as a potential developer. The fact that the code is publicly available, that it is created collectively in the issue queues on Drupal.org, and the documentation is relatively easy to access are all parts of the equation. With some time and interest almost anyone can get involved and start building sites.
