Events - The Online ColdFusion Meetup "Reverse Proxy Caching – Introduction (What is it? Why use it?)", Damon Gentry - Dec 8
The Online ColdFusion Meetup
Our 12pm (US ET) talk on Thursday Dec 12 will be "Reverse Proxy Caching – Introduction (What is it? Why use it?)", with Damon Gentry.
TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker)
In this presentation, Damon Gentry will introduce the topic of Reverse Proxy Cache systems. Using a Reverse Proxy Cache, you can dramatically increase the performance of your website, scale your web application in a cost effective manner, and be protected against sudden bursts in increased traffic to your site. Many people think that they can't cache dynamic content, but there are lots of reasons why you should. Damon will discuss two implementations where Oregon Health and Science University uses a Reverse Proxy Cache in creative ways to improve site performance and provide a very high degree of server up-time.
• What is Reverse Proxy Caching?
• Why use a Reverse Proxy Cache?
• How difficult is it to implement?
• How much will it cost?
• 2 examples @ OHSU
MEETING URL: http://experts.adobec...

ABOUT THE SPEAKER: (provided by the speaker)
Damon Gentry has been working with ColdFusion applications since 1997. After developing CFML applications for 8 years, Damon got tired of the server admins bashing ColdFusion and decided to take matters into his own hands by becoming a CF server expert. For the past 9 years, he's specialized in JVM heap management, performance tuning, security, and web scalability. Currently, he's the Sr. Web Systems Engineer at Oregon Health & Science University. He also brews his own beer.

RSVP, but only if coming: We do appreciate folks RSVPing if they plan to come (using the link on this email or at the meetup site), though it's not mandatory and it's not a commitment. But there's no need to RSVP if you can't make it let alone explain why you can't. With over 2,800 members, no worries. :-)
FEEDBACK/MEETING DISCUSSION: Members will receive an email after the meeting or can click a link on the event page to offer.

ADD THIS TO YOUR CALENDAR: Want to add this event to your own personal calendar? After logging in here , you'll see an option at the top of the event page, just below the event title, saying, "Export", which offers calendar downloads for Outlook, iCal, Google, and Yahoo calendars. (Note that the calendar entry created will show the event taking 2 hours. That's a default that meetup.com has chosen, which I can't change. The meetings are generally about an hour, though often go as much as 30-45 minutes longer with Q&A and chat.)
