What do you do when your blog goes from a thousand pageviews a day to a million? Well, you start out by watching this video of a lecture on HyperDB and High Performance WordPress given by Barry Abrahamson and Matt Mullenweg at WordCamp 2007, in which they explain how they scale WordPress.com across hundreds of servers and constantly tweak and improve performance.
This lecture occurred on Sunday July 22, 2007 from 10am-11am in San Francisco, CA at the Swedish American Hall.
The video is currently available on Viddler and as I get it uploaded to other places IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll update this post. Keep in mind that you can leave tags and comments within the video embedded below by selecting the little icons that look like… well, comments and tags.
