When Acquia-related developer content starts piling up around the Web, it's time for an Acquia Dev Scan.

In this edition: Taming Expanding Databases in Drupal 8, Reservoir on DrupalEasy, and a Conference for Decoupled Drupal Developers

Dealing with expanding cache_render tables in Drupal 8

There are a number of scenarios in Drupal 8 where you might notice your MySQL database size starts growing incredibly fast, even if you're not adding any content.

Jeff Geerling, Senior Technical Architect, Acquia, figured out that most of the time the problem stems from a exponentially-increasing-in-size cache_render table. After talking about this problem with a number of colleagues, he decided to write a blog post to cover common scenarios, as well as short and long-term fixes if you run into this issue. Hence: Dealing with Drupal 8 and a giant cache_render table.

The DrupalEasy podcast focuses on Reservoir

Ebullient DrupalEasy podcast host Mike Anello spent almost the entirety of a recent show talking with Acquian Ted Bowman about Reservoir, the new Drupal 8 distribution from Acquia's Office of the CTO that's focused on decoupling.

Listen to it here.

Decoupled Drupal Days

Speaking of decoupling, Preston So, one of the contributors to Reservoir, is also part of the team organizing Decoupled Drupal Days, a small developer-focused conference for architects, developers, and businesspeople involved in implementing decoupled Drupal architectures.

  • Location: New York City
  • Dates: August 19–20, 2017

It's early yet, but you can keep track of this evolving confab by checking out the conference's Twitter feed. Recent tweets, for example, have revealed that Drupal luminaries Sebastian Siemssen, Daniel Wehner, and Sally Young are all speaking.

Sound interesting? A ticket is a towering $25.

See you next time.
