You might have seen me write before, that Drupal 8 is about 3x times faster that the Wordpress. Now, there has been a new study, oriented mainly on HHVM VS PHP7 performance, which has proven what was already known: PHP7 is still somewhat slower than HHVM, even though it is times faster than PHP 5.6. The study compared different CMS performance under both HHVM and PHP7 on the same server. Thus, we can use the results to compare the CMS between eac...

Understood today why my Ubuntu Wily won't boot. IOMMU. Latest kernel 3x workes with IOMMU enabled in BIOS, and Ubuntu Wily (based on 4.x) panics when IOMMU is enabled. Arr!!!

It took Dolphin (Kubuntu 15.04) 30 minutes to transfer 4MB of simplepie to the server. It took FileZilla 2 minutes to do the same. WTF, Dolphin?!

After Wim Leer's article on the Drupal 8 enhanced cache, I decided to run a performance test comparing Drupal 7.39 and the new Drupal 8 RC1 performance. I had high hopes. However, the results for Drupal 8 are still not good. For anonymous users, Drupal 7 beats Drupal 8 as much as 3 times still.

When you are a small company that tries to establish long-term relationships with its customers, you want to provide as much integration with them after the launch as possible. This may include hosting or hosting reselling, a support and update plan, and a continuous growth/integration plan.

I have just received a comment for my Should I upgrade my web site to Drupal 8... at all? article. I will quite this comment here, and this short article will be my response. Drupal 8 is release and... It is clearly a platform built for enterprises, without even trying to reach a general market. Development, blamed before for being expensive and time-consuming, got even worse. General market, working on shared-hosting-based environments can now k...

If you need to export your documents to pdf, ePub, and ppt (pptx), this article may come of handy. I have been in a project recently as a part a team working on an electronic educational web site, where educational materials were available online as articles, and also convertable from HTML to either a pdf document, an ePub document, or a Powerpoint pptx document. Then, it was required to render some articles into screenshots for presentations (mo...

WTF Wordpress?! Any ideas why?
How low is low? Yesterday I published my upsetting tests about the Drupal 7 to 8 RC1 performance. Clearly, 3 times drop of performance is not a nice thing to have in Drupal 8. Now, the question is, would that make me consider WordPress as the best alternative? I do have some smaller clients who ...

I did not want to build a copy of a New Relic but smaller. I needed a slightly different logic. When thinking of a tool to monitor multiple web sites, I wanted to create a type of alert for admins when it was necessary. The logic was to gather relevant data as unobtrusively as possible without ...
