About the presentation:
Patrick will do a talk on memcached (http://memcached.org/), the moxi memcached proxy (https://code.google.com/p/moxi/) and about Northscale’s memcached AMIs for Amazon EC2 as well as using these with the memcached functions for MySQL (user-defined database functions) that he wrote. How you can use these for caching data to reduce the load on database servers.
Patrick has been working with Linux since 1993. Some of his previous experiences have included working on Slashdot, Linux.com, Newsforge.com, launching Slashcode.com and Sourceforge Foundries, developing and maintaining DBD::mysql, mysqlslap development and more than I could possibly list here.
He is the author of “Developing Web Applications with Apache, MySQL, memcached, and Perl” published by Wylie and Sons.
