At Drupal for NGOs in London, UK, strong interest was expressed in sharing development practices for Drupal development.

So let's do it!

We'd like to share some of our experiences and ideas with you, and find out how you guys deal with things like auto-deployment, developmen-staging-live syncing issues and the use of version control systems to protect and distribute your work.


* We'll share with you our workflow and development best practices
* Hopefully you guys will share yours!


We hope everyone will walk away with more tools and techniques for deploying, and maybe come to some kind of agreement on best practices for Drupal workflow.

All in all I think this could be a very productive session.


We require no resources, but we might print out a little write-up regarding our experiences and techniques to hand out during the session.

I'm looking forward to this conversation. See recent thread on devel ("Solving the dev->staging->live problem") and thread on heyrocker's blog:

versioning config

I'm looking forward to this conversation. We've got what is probably a usual setup for subversion, etc. But I'm interested in exploring different strategies for dealing with config information stored in the database.
