Distribution Exploration: Thunder and Lightning

Distributions aren’t something with which I’ve had a lot of experience (other than a failed attempt at setting up OpenAtrium back in the Drupal 6 days). However, I’ve always been intrigued by the idea of using a distribution to get a head start on development, since I always seem to install the same set of modules for every website that I develop.

Sitecore Page Performance Part 5: Critical Assets
