Did you ever experience a slow Drupal site or are you annoyed by the fact that your awesome site is to slow to really enjoy it? Let's have a look together at the bottlenecks of Drupal and how to get around those. The goal of the lab is to provide you knowledge about known bottlenecks in Drupal and strategies to avoid / resolve them.
