About the Talk
February 20, 2009 4:00 AM
Capistrano is the de-facto tool used to deploy Rails applications, but it is useful for so much more. In this talk we will publish a real website from scratch, with consideration for real world stuff like safeguarding passwords, turning on and off application monitoring, multiple machine deployments, and general system administration tasks.
In addition to a real deploy in-session, we will look at the real deploy scripts for several real-world, large websites involving multiple machine architectures, minimal (sub second) downtimes, and different server configurations.
