After the success of its first Velocity conference in June, O'Reilly is expanding to a three-day format with Velocity 2009, which is scheduled for June 22-24th, 2009 at the Fairmont Hotel in San Jose, CA. Here's the description:
"The Velocity conference is where to learn how to build websites and services that are fast, scalable, efficient, and reliable. We're bringing together people from around the world who are doing the best performance and operations work to improve the experience of web users worldwide. ... The next cool startup will be able to scale more quickly and globally to serve a larger audience. Velocity is the key for crossing over from cool Web 2.0 features to sustainable websites."
Conference chair Jesse Robbins has put out a call for proposals. If your expertise is in web scalability and performance, and have insight to share with your colleagues, check out the proposals page and the accompanying post on the O'Reilly Radar blog.
