We are starting a monthly meetup in Denver to focus specifically on DevOps issues that relate to Drupal.
DevOps is one of those nebulous terms that seem to vary in definition from person to person. From the perspective of these meetings, DevOps is the art of solving both technical and management issues related to deploying and maintaining Drupal for small to large shops.
We will begin by focusing on the individual and address specific solutions that can be used by a single person doing Drupal development. We will then branch out and discuss specific workflows, strategies and technology that will help an individual Drupal developer become part of larger teams on larger projects.
This will be a fun way of learning new techniques that will help you become the best you can be regardless of if you are an individual or a company. These meetings will be recorded and documented to benefit the community.
We will be hosting these meetings at the New Media Denver offices in Downtown Denver on the second Thursday of each month beginning in July. We look forward to seeing you there.
Food and drinks will be provided beginning at 6:00 with the presentation/discussion starting at 7:00.
David Arnold https://github.com/DavidXArnold will be walking through some of the more technical parts related to chef development. The presentation will cover the components of newmedia's skeleton chef cookbook and how we use them to rapidly test, deploy, and update a project. The skeleton that we have built leverages chef metadata and uses tools such as ruby linters, rake, rspec, and travis.
You will be able to view this meetup remotely at https://plus.google.com/events/cn34kdrp1go3bkimq63us7q79pg beginning at 7:00pm MST.
