Developer Best Practices: Make Your Drupal Site Deployment Friendly

Tuesday, May 10, 2011 - 6:15pm

From version control to Features, where do you get started in making your Drupal site deployment-friendly? In this presentation we’ll take a look at what you can do throughout the development process to make sure your multiple environments play well together and keep both developers and QA testers sane at the same time. Between code, content, and configuration, each should be managed in its own unique way.

Some specific topics covered will include -

* Setup and configuration of multiple environments
* Flow of code, content, and configuration between environments
* Using branches and tags in version control
* Deploying code using version control
* Drupal modules to facilitate moving configuration into code
* Writing your own update functions
* Using drush to facilitate deployments
