Custom plugin/theme development for a large institution introduces deployment problems. Oftentimes, we don't want to publish the code to WordPress.org, because it is not relevant or contains private data, but then we lose the ability to easily install and keep those plugins up-to-date. For one or two sites it's not a big problem, but at the scale of several hundred it can quickly become a monster.
In this talk, we will go over some potential solutions to the problem of custom code deployments at scale, and how we solved this problem at NC State University.
