Posted by Pim van der Wal on Jun 20, 2017

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.
