  • Put THAT in Your Pipe and Deploy It!

    by David Brewer

    A deployment pipeline combines several development best practices, fully automated and taken to their logical extreme. The result is almost magical: changesets go in one end, and fully-tested software packages come out the other. We'll take a tour of the components of a deployment pipeline, with concrete examples showing how to use Hudson, Rake, and Puppet to deploy PHP projects.

    In this session, we will answer the following questions:
    * what is a deployment pipeline?
    * why do I need one?
    * how can I implement one using open source tools?

    We will begin with a quick overview of deployment pipelines and their powerful benefits. We will then look in more detail at the components of such a pipeline, and some of the excellent open source tools you can use to implement your own. Along the way we'll look at concrete examples of a specific deployment pipeline implemented at Second Story to deploy PHP-based web applications.

    The session's examples will involve these tools:
    * continuous integration using Hudson (or its recent fork, Jenkins)
    * configuration management using Puppet
    * build automation using Rake

    This is a high level session meant to introduce concepts and tools; it will be light on code examples or live demonstration of software.

    At 1:30pm to 2:15pm, Thursday 23rd June
