Velocity is a new O'Reilly conference dedicated to "Optimizing Web Performance and Scalability". It starts next Monday. Yesterday I was contacted by Adam Jacobs of HJK Solutions about taking part in a panel discussion about what happens when success comes suddenly to a web site. I think he thought I was in the bay area. Little did he know I am in Alabama. But, amazingly, I was able to work it all out so I can be there. I wish I had known about this conference ahead of time. It sounds really awesome. Performance has always been something I focus on. I hope to share some and learn at the same time.
So, if you are going to be there, come see our panel.
P.S. Thanks to John Allspaw of Flickr for recommending me to Adam.
