How to setup and configure Memcache on MAMP Version 2 for OSX Lion

Over the years I have become a fan of Memcache/Memcached environments for both production and development. This caching mechanism is super stable, reliable and greatly helps reduce the expense of the PHP/MySQL driven applications that I work on daily. In production it greatly reduces server load and in a development environment, it certainly increases performance.

Colorado Library Birds of a Feather Gathering in Denver on February 15th, 2011

The Colorado Library Birds of a Feather Gathering was a great success. About 28 people attended and mostly everyone presented about their past and future projects. I am pleased to see that so many libraries are embracing Drupal with great success. Drupal continues to be a perfect match for many library needs by providing strong content management system capabilities and acting as a rapid development platform for more in-dept projects.

Drupal Camp Colorado 2011

Drupal Camp Colorado 2011 was extremely successful. I was very honored to fulfill the role of venue coordinator for the second year running. I extend a special thank you to the Auraria Campus and King Center venue managers and the local Drupal Camp Colorado volunteers who made our camp extra special. Our camp was one hundred percent organized and run by volunteers. Financially, the camp was supported by many great sponsors for whom we are eternally grateful.

Traveling to Denmark was a great experience and attending Drupalcon made it all that much more enjoyable. I really valued experiencing Copenhagen with my friends in Drupal community. Kudos to everyone for being so friendly, adventurous and generous. The social gatherings, conference sessions and overall planning were excellent. The Drupalcon Copenhagen team really did an outstanding job of organizing this event.

Drupal Camp Colorado 2010

Drupal Camp Colorado 2010 was huge. More than 340 people attended and the sessions were outstanding. This year I stepped up my involvement by helping to arrange the venue. I worked with the Information Systems and Management school at the Metropolitan State College of Denver, the local AITP chapter student group and the Auraria campus to hold the camp in the North Classroom Building.

Drupal Camp Colorado 2009

This was my first Drupal Camp and at the time it was the third Drupal event I had attended. By that time I had been developing sites using Drupal as a full time occupation for about a year and I wanted to give back to the community. This is where I discovered how large and awesome the Colorado Drupal community is in Colorado. Around 230 people attended not just from Colorado but from around the county. It was really more like a convention than a traditional camp. Local vendors supported the event, which unlike many other camps had a well organized, dedicated web site and planned structured sessions.
