Learn to change tires on a moving car! 

In this session, you'll learn efficient and bulletproof(-ish) ways to roll out significant changes to new/existing sites without any manual UI changes. No more scribbling, code-pushing, and clicking: enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing your configuration will automatically cascade into all your environments.

We'll touch on:

  • Creation / use of a custom "deployment" module
  • Features Best Practices
  • Configuration Management in D8
  • Integration with Continuous Integration
  • What NOT to automate

If you're a mid-level / senior backend developer, this session will give you the knowledge that will make your DevOps adore you, and your clients not hate you so much.
