Creating killer websites is hard, but deploying them shouldn’t be. Developing and deploying web sites is best accomplished using a methodology called Continuous Integration (CI). By working in small batches, testing constantly and automating all testing and deployment tasks, you can avoid big surprises and a painful deployment experience. However, achieving a true Continuous Integration development process requires building and maintaining a highly automated infrastructure. You can build such a system yourself, or you can be up and running in a few minutes with the tools provide on Acquia Cloud.
In this webinar you’ll learn:
• The principles of Continuous Integration
• How to build Continuous Integration into your Drupal development process
• How to automate running tests, sanitize databases, perform rollbacks and other actions on Acquia Cloud using the Cloud API
• How to use Live Development—editing code directly on your server—as part of your Continuous Integration process.
Lead by Barry Jaspan, this session will also include a demonstration of Acquia’s continuous integration platform—Acquia Cloud.
