From: Jason Dixon on
We're excited to announce Surge, the Scalability and Performance
Conference, to be held in Baltimore on Sept 30 and Oct 1, 2010. The
event focuses on case studies that demonstrate successes (and failures)
in Web applications and Internet architectures.

Rasmus Lerdorf will be presenting his "PHP Performance Checklist" talk
at Surge, and our Keynote speakers include John Allspaw and Theo
Schlossnagle. We are currently accepting submissions for the Call For
Papers through July 9th. You can find more information, including our
current list of speakers, online:

If you've been to Velocity, or wanted to but couldn't afford it, then
Surge is just what you've been waiting for. For more information,
including CFP, sponsorship of the event, or participating as an
exhibitor, please contact us at surge(a)
