The June NWDUG meetup will take place on June 3rd at MadLab on Edge Street from 7PM until 9PM.
This month we have John Cleary who will be talking about the Capistrano.
Capistrano : Automate All The Things
For many years Capistrano has been the defacto deployment tool, but many organisations have yet to realise the benefits of automating their deployment process. Automated Deployments are fast, less error prone, easier to rollback and you can dish out the keys to other team members so anyone can deploy.
During this talk we’ll look at how to “capify” a simple PHP project and deploy it in a few minutes. And, as Capistrano is a “remote server automation and deployment tool”, we’ll also look at some of the other things Capistrano can do for you such as restarting apache or grepping server log (and more). We’ll also take a look at the various plug-ins available and see how easy it can be to write your own.
If you are deploying using ssh / git pull / apache restart? Then it’s time to make a change: automate all the things and live in a world of “repeatable success”.
After the talk we will break off into groups so that people can talk through their Drupal problems with other members of the group. There is nothing formal planned for this, we will just ask if anyone has any problems and if anyone can help them solve it.
We usually wrap things up before 9:00 PM and move to a pub. Come along and join in the Drupal fun!
