Recently returned from the Open Source Content Management Systems (OSCMS 2007) gathering held at the Yahoo! campus in Sunnyvale, CA.
Drupal was strongly represented at OSCMS, but also saw some Joomla, Plone and Alfresco presence.
As often, PHP maven Rasmus Lerdorf was in attendance, in this case, demonstrating the latest in security and performance considerations.
I found great value in the day-long seminar on Drupal/LAMP performance and scalability given by Dries Buytaert (Drupal), James Walker (Bryght), Jeremy Andrews (CivicSpace) and Matt Westgate (Lullabot), with a guest appearance by Robert Douglass (Lullabot). If anyone continues to have doubts about LAMP platform applications scaling to enterprise levels…they should have been in attendance to absorb the variety of solutions from hardware to network to architecture to database to code offered here. After this, I will no longer doubt that LAMP applications can be tailored to meet enterprise demands.
