Session Description:
At Lafayette College we were already using git to manage our WordPress multisite networks, but our process depended on a cumbersome submodule-based approach and browser-based upgrades. We ditched all that for an approach based on Capistrano for deployment and Composer for versioning, gaining both flexibility and speed. In this session I’ll explain how we used composer repositories to abstract away our version control strategy and speed up deployments. This approach is appropriate for small teams as it requires minimal infrastructure and investment.
