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.

We're a Drupal strategy, development, training and consulting company with teams in Los Angeles, Boston and Miami. We like overcoming challenges and doing things that haven't been done before, and we're looking for great people to join us.
This position is for system administrators and high performance specialists. We're growing, and our development, training, support and marketing departments also have positions with immediate availability.
The majority of us are in the Los Angeles area, but as a distributed company we welcome telecommuters.
Customers who we work with love us for our dedication to the high quality of our work, how we exceed their expectations and that we communicate with honesty, integrity and transparency. See our Clients list and Case Studies for an idea of the challenging and exciting work that we do.
Our team loves us for the same reasons, and for our company culture, our highly competitive rates and our in-house training and mentoring program. As a team member, you'll find your freedom and salary are unmatched elsewhere.
We're deeply dedicated to contributing to both the Drupal project and its community, and we offer paid time for our community contributions, including Drupal modules, themes and event organizing.
The skills that we value the most are communication, collaboration and community contribution. If you'd like to join our team or would just like us to keep you in mind for future work, let us know at http://www.larks.la/jobs
Please note that we are looking for individuals, not agencies or recruiters. When contacting us, tell us about the following:
- Your Drupal.org username
- Your resume and LinkedIn profile
- Your specialties, whether they be design, theming, development, marketing, system administration, training, project management, etc.
- Case studies or articles about websites you've built (or helped build) and what you're proud of
- A list of Drupal modules and themes that you maintain or contribute to on Drupal.org
- Your location (i.e. the time zone you're usually in) and if you're a morning lark or a night owl
- Where you'd like to go for the next Larks company retreat
For extra credit, check out the questions that our team has selected.
Exaltation of Larks is a company of talented and passionate people and while we like rock stars as much as anyone else, we like working together and getting things done more than watching someone perform. We embrace participation and like the idea that we should be working with people rather than working for them.
Our core values set us apart from the rest and two of those values are good communication and mutual respect. We make an effort to tell people what they need to hear, not what they want to hear. This is important when working with one another, and it's equally important when working with our clients and partners.
In short, the people we want to work with are great at what they do, demonstrate leadership and guide people to be their best. Rock stars, or people who take all the credit and attention, are egotistical and hard to work with, and who may or may not have what it takes to get the job done but insists they do anyway, need not apply.
If you’re like us, you love a good puzzle. It’s not always easy for us to see how a person thinks and likes to work just from reading their resume and that’s why this list is here. Don’t worry, we already know the answers and would love to hear from you whether you know the answers or not.
Include your responses to any of the questions at http://www.larks.la/jobs when contacting us and we’ll have something to talk about when we get back to you. Some of these are trivia questions and a correct answer tells us that you either know your industry or are good at doing research.
For questions that don’t have a single answer, help us understand your process by explaining how you’d go about finding the solution. If there’s another question that you think belongs in this list, let us know at http://www.larks.la/jobsRead more

I created a module using hook_rules_action_info. I can access the menu in Rules and I wrote a function in the module that takes numbers 1-10 and I shuffles them up to apply them to fields as to create a random pool. When I dpm the variable $numbers I see the array as integers displaying, but I am tiring in vain to use 'provide' as described in some tourtorials but I can not get it to be accessed by the entity api? I do have a return at the end of the function that does the number shuffle. I feel this is where I am doing something wrong? Or is there something else?Read more
drupal generates a considerable load on the web server and can quickly become resource constrained there, having multiple web servers also increases the the redundancy of your deployment. it is always a system engineering perspective to take care the platform of drupal, i have seen a site with minimum memory to be ran is 4G, at the same time it is still slow. Handling the platform well that delivering your web service could enhance end-user experience, and at the same time saving costs.Read more

EXTREME DRUPAL MEETUP! High Performance, DevOps & Large Scale Drupal in Marina Del Rey, CA and Webcast on August 19, 2014
We're rebooting the High Performance Drupal Meetup! Join us for the first Extreme Drupal Meetup where we focus on Drupal scalability, performance and benchmarking as well as devops, deployment, infrastructure, high performance hosting, monitoring and highly repeatable processes.
This meetup is on Tuesday, August 19, 2014, between 7-9pm Pacific. Those interested in attending this meetup remotely are welcome to join the webcast.
We're also excited to announce our first-ever meetup at our new Marina Del Rey venue right next to Mothers Beach.
About Extreme Drupal
Formerly known as the High Performance Drupal Meetup, this event covers Drupal scalability, performance and benchmarking as well as devops, deployment, infrastructure, high performance hosting, monitoring and highly repeatable processes.
All are welcome but this is not a meetup for beginners.
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
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
