This is part ONE of a two part series on how to leverage the power of Pantheon to easily achieve a modern DevOps approach to development and deployment. See also: Part two.
OK. Let me ask you a question...
Q: What good is GIT version control and a 3-STAGE development process if it's a pain to set up and manage?
A: Zero, Zilch NODDA! Because your team can't use it and if they try it only gets in the way of actually building the project at hand. :-(
Does Dev-Ops have to be that hard?
Join me as we take a good, hard look at PANTHEON, the Best Practices, Dev-Ops solution that is taking the Drupal landscape by storm.
What you will not learn:
Jenkins, Linux, Amazon AS3, Varnish, Redis, Server Maintenance, Tuning System files, etc. [PANTHEON manages all that for you!]
What you will learn:
How to set up a free, fast, and functional Drupal SandBox on the Pantheon platform
How to implement security to keep eyes off of your Dev site
How to replciate the Dev site across the Test and Live environments
How to copy the code down from Dev to your local machine [With either GIT or SFTP]
How to track changes in Dev and deploy them to Test and Live
How to synch the database from Live down to Test and Dev
How to make sure you're taking advantage of Varnish [Very Easy To Do!]
How to easily cover your but by taking backups
How to add Team Members to your Pantheon dashboard
This will be a practical, hands-on experience. Bring your laptop and follow along.
We'll go at a pace where you can ask questions and keep up!
