[development] development with scalability in mind

I listened to the presentation and found it interesting. It was missing some
of what I wanted. My site is too big for shared hosting but cannot afford
going beyond one dedicated machine. Clearly cache the hell out of everything
is probably the best advice but perhaps there are other tweaks that should
be looked at as well. A question I had submitted before the talk did not get
covered. I would like to see a graph, perhaps a nomogram, of something like
max hits per hour vs. appropriate technology (both hardware and software).

Keep in mind this was a one hour introductory webinar covering
scalability and performance for Drupal.  I covered a lot of material
quickly, and tried to touch on a lot of relevant performance and
scalability technologies and techniques.

incompatible things, called by the same name - liberty. And it follows that
each of the things is, by the respective parties, called by two different
and incompatible names - liberty and tyranny."
