There has been an up and coming categorization of engineers in the Drupal world that specialize in what we call DevOps. DevOps entails managing the infrastructure and workflow practices to deliver enterprise level sites in complex environments. This should span everything from automated testing, change management tools like puppet, branching strategies, continuous integration, performance and anything else that falls in this category.
Please make every effort to keep posts in this group on topic. We will do our best to assist, but this is not a dumping ground for random requests and development problems.

Want a different kind of Drupal Job?
Can you believe that this is not an advertisment looking for your standard backend drupal developer? For some reason, in my mind, those seem to translate to, "we really mean back-end, front-end, team lead, etc." ... This is not one of those.
If you've read this far you are probably not a normal job seeker. I expect that you are, in fact, not looking for a job. You are likely employed in an enterprise that has given you the gift of working at scale with Drupal. You are who I want to speak with.Read more
My client has been let down at the last minute so urgently requires a Mid-Weight Drupal Developer for 2, maybe 3 weeks.

Anyone available / recommendations would be much appreciated...start date is Tuesday 28th May.

David Arnold https://github.com/DavidXArnold will be walking through some of the more technical parts related to chef development. The presentation will cover the components of newmedia's skeleton chef cookbook and how we use them to rapidly test, deploy, and update a project. The skeleton that we have built leverages chef metadata and uses tools such as ruby linters, rake, rspec, and travis. If you have any interest in learning how to use Chef in your deployments, this will be a great presentation.
We are attempting to broadcast these in a public space utilizing google plus pages (which suck btw). They do give us broadcasting capabilities to the public. The online poriton of the meetup will be visible at https://plus.google.com/events/cn34kdrp1go3bkimq63us7q79pg ... Contact me if you are interested in broadcasting your local meetup through this medium.Read more
I wanted to share something I published today: http://drupalignite.com.
Basically it's a tool and a set of practices to setup a Drupal environment under a full Continuous Integration cycle using some well-known tools as drush, phing, composer and jenkins for the build phase, phpunit and behat for the testing and features and migrate for keeping everything (structure and data) in a code driven development shape.
I published the introduction, the following chapters will be published in the next months!
You can find the code on github: https://github.com/omissis/drupal-ignite
The global DevOps community exists to explore the concepts of process and management in a digital world. For many people, this immediately causes thoughts of automation, deployments, virtualization, source control systems, and monitoring. For others, DevOps is reminiscent of the factory processes the digital world has blurred. It becomes a conversation of workflow management, bottlenecks, team interdependence, and being able to accurately plot states of a project.Read more
Greater Los Angeles Drupal Camp (GLADCamp) is a free, 3-day conference for All Things Drupal on March 7th, 8th & 9th, 2014, at the Hilton Pasadena & Convention Center in Pasadena, California.

Our community members are also planning their own events to coincide with the conference, including client meetings and company retreats.Read more
There is a conversation that has been building in the Drupal community ... it's a slow awakening to the realization that Drupal will not survive without embracing a DevOps culture. You've either heard the whispering, or you have known this for a long time ... come join the conversation.
In this meetup Brandon Williams will be discussing potential management issues with Drupal's default cron system and integration. He will illustrate how these problems can be targeted and solved with Drush.Read more
The High Performance Drupal meetup is back! After taking a few months off, we're excited to announce we're meeting at Winkynet, a customer-focused, high performance webhost, at their Brea (Orange County) office on Tuesday, January 21, 2014, between 7-9pm Pacific. Join us!
Those interested in attending this meetup remotely are welcome to join us via WebEx.
About High Performance Drupal
The "high performance" part of the name is a catch-all to describe Drupal scalability, performance and benchmarking but we also discuss devops, deployment, infrastructure, high performance hosting, monitoring and highly repeatable processes.
We've been meeting since April, 2011, in a variety of locations around the Greater Los Angeles Area. Also, this meetup has been held at coffeeshops in the past and the addition of caffeine makes our meetings feel as if they go faster and faster as the night goes on.Read more
We've been having a meetup here in denver to discuss issues related to devops and drupal. We are doing these using these on gotomeeting so that we can allow interactivity for remote participants. The first attempt at this was this event https://groups.drupal.org/node/383963 and the results can be found here https://vimeo.com/82347887
This is not as random of a question as it sounds. In an effort to continue providing quality speakers and content for upcoming Drupal events I'm reaching out to the community for help. Who, in or out of the Drupal community, do you think of when you hear the word DevOps? Who are the shops and practitioners that shine when it comes to this mysterious word?
Any help collecting this list is greatly appreciated!
