Useful Bash: deploymentSunday, September 04, 2011
I'm sure a lot of people can relate, when I say that deploying changes isn't my favorite part of the job. It's error prone, tedious, repetitive, and leads to a lot of shotgun debugging, when for some reason things don't work out on the production server. I'd like to show some snippets how deploying could be made easier, and less error prone. Note that this won't be a tutorial on bash scripting, since there are already a lot of that on the web, it will be more about putting it to some use.
