Fabric: Fast one line consistent deployments across multiple servers
James Taylor (@jmons)
For small organizations, or even hobbyists, deploying modern systems can become annoyingly complex. There are several solutions which we’ll look at briefly, before doing a deep dive and demonstration of how I use “Fabric” to do controlled continual deployments with no stress and maximum fun. In this session we will be doing a live-code demonstration, as well as taking continual questions and heckling is encouraged. Even if you can’t code, but manage sysops or coders, hopefully you’ll get to see what low stress deployments can look like.
