Fwd: [Buffalo-pm] September Perl Mongers Meeting
cbrandt at buffalo.edu
Thu Sep 11 10:26:42 CDT 2003
Haven't seen a reminder about the meeting, so here it is.
The meeting is *tonight* and details are below.
Attendance has been a bit low, so if you're on the list, think about
coming tonight. Even if you're not coming, pass the details along to a
friend or colleague who might have a passing interest in mod_perl.
These technologies have a certain "buzz", but many times people don't
really know what they're about. This is a great opportunity to point
people to a free talk on the how's and why's. Bring your questions! If
you're on other lists, forward it to the lists!
Let's try to pull together a strong turn-out tonight!
See you all there.

> FastCGI and mod_perl: Serving Up Dynamic Content Faster
> Jim Brandt, analyst with Administrative Computing Services, University
> Buffalo, and Kevin Eye, Web applications developer with Creative
> and Marketing Department at University at Buffalo, will compare
> and FastCGI, two nonproprietary solutions for accelerating dynamic
> mod_perl brings together two of the most powerful and mature
> available to the web professional today. mod_perl can accelerate your
> existing dynamic content with the standard Apache::Registry module and
> reduce the load on your server at the same time. mod_perl allows Perl
> programmers to write powerful custom Apache modules to extend and tap
> the power of the world's most popular http server.
> FastCGI is a fast, open, and secure Web server interface that solves
> performance problems inherent in CGI, without introducing the overhead
> complexity of proprietary APIs. FastCGI's advantages include
> boosts through persistent processes reused to handle multiple requests;
> simplicity, with easy migration from CGI, and language independence.
