With budget cuts and rising expectations, higher education websites have become a challenging balancing act of function and affordability. Late in 2016, we set out to build a website solution that would leverage a CMS to create a repeatable, flexible website solution that meets current expectations in higher ed clients, and leaves room for them to make it their own -- without requiring custom development for each client. We also wanted to ensure that it could be deployed for under $50,000; put the work of managing and maintaining the site into the hands of the content team; and have a low-recurring cost to the client.

One of the more interesting products to hit the spotlight at this year's Percona Live Open Source Database conference was ProxySQL.

This open source MySQL proxy server has been around for a couple of years now and keeps adding more features. The current release (1.3.6) has the usual features that you would expect from a proxy server, like load balancing and failover support, but ProxySQL also has database specific features like a query cache and query routing.

Talking through the growing pains of using Drupal with Composer dependency management at DrupalCon Baltimore. Drupal gets better when companies, organizations, and individuals build or fix something they need and then share it with the rest of us. Open source technologies become better, stronger, and smarter when others take it upon themselves to make a positive difference contributing their knowledge, time, and energy to it. Acquia is proud to play a part, alongside thousands of others, in making tomorrow’s Drupal better than today’s. One of the people making a difference is Jeff Geerling.
