Party with Varnish

Anyone who runs a high-availability Drupal site knows about Varnish, the open-source HTTP reverse-proxy server. Varnish intercepts requests before they hit the web server and delivers relevant information that it finds in its cache, resulting in lower loads and radically faster pages.

We love Varnish at Acquia. It's one of the ingredients that makes Acquia Dev Cloud and Acquia Managed Cloud so fast.

This Thursday, the Varnish team will celebrate the release of Varnish 3.0 with parties around the world, much as the Drupal community celebrated the release of Drupal 7.

Because we love Varnish, Acquia is organizing and sponsoring two Varnish release parties. One is in Boston, at the Cambridge Brewing Company from 6:30 to 8:30pm; a second is in Portland at the Lucky Labrador Brewing Company starting at 6:00pm. Both are on Thursday, June 16th. See the Varnish 3.0 party page for parties at locations near you.

It's a great opportunity to meet fellow web geeks and have some good (free!) beer. I'll be at the Boston party, and look forward to seeing the local Varnish users!

Further details are on Varnish's web site. See you this Thursday!

To everyone attending the V3RP in Cambridge tonight - I'm a Drupal Developer that can't attend, but my band is playing 3 sets of original, acoustic music at the Middle East Corner Room at 10pm. It's right around the corner from the Cambridge Brewing Company, and it will be a great location for a V3RP Post Party. Great songs, but you can still discuss Drupal over the acoustic guitars. :)
