Drupal Twig conversion performance test with JMeter

Note: The Twig conversion acts here more as a pretext to showcase the power and flexibility of using Apache JMeter™ as a benchmarking tool for Drupal.

Staring with release 8, Twig was adopted as theme engine for Drupal. The conversion of PHPTemplate theme_*() functions and *.tpl.php template require also benchmarking.

Komodo Edit: key based authentication to remote filesystems in Mac OSX Snow Leopard

At Webikon we use Komodo Edit enthusiastically for some time now. It is a great IDE, but it still lacks some features common to other competitiors, like version control integration or remote key based SSH login. One classic example of this shortcome is when developing using an Amazon EC2 instance that only allows private key logins. Fortunately, there are a lot of options when running Komodo Edit on OSX or any other *nix like based system. One solution is to mount locally the remote filesystem and let ssh handle the communication. Here is a short guide on how to do this in Mac OSX Snow Leopard (10.6), assuming that you already setup Amazon EC2 key pairs and you are able to SSH flawlessly from your machine (see here how to set up Amazon EC2 credentials).

What we learned from DrupalCamp Timisoara 2010

DrupalCamp Timisoara 2010 was a suprising event. When we first started talking about it, during the early days of Drupal Romania Association, there was a common worry about how much interest does Drupal raise in Romania. I was initially pretty reserved about the number of people we could gather. At that point we did not had any idea about what Drupal means professionally in Romania.
