Advanced Web Deployments with Puppet
Introduction to Puppet for web application roll-out
April 26th, 2011
We're pleased to have John Coggeshall (and spring) return to NYPHP for our April meeting. Long-time web expert, John will show his latest techniques for rolling out and managing web applications.
One of the most undiscussed subjects in web application development today is application deployment. In this talk, we'll discuss how to use a great deployment tool Puppet to not only deploy your application into staging or production, but how that exact same work can be used to build robust development environments quickly and easily that are entirely consistent with their staging and production counterparts. In this talk you'll learn actionable techniques, tips and tricks to take your deployments and development environments from self-created hacks to robust maintainable processes.
