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

Discussions and wikis
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!

Our meetups follow a basic format and start off with Drupal news and announcements, local job announcements, raffle prizes and full-length presentations.

Drupalcon Portland inspired me to start a discussion on steps we can take to foster more collaboration and discussion on DevOps as it applies to those using Drupal. There is a ton of DevOps knowledge distributed throughout the community that is sadly not being shared in a helpful manner. This could be some nifty trick a freelancer picks up that goes undocumented, up to a larger agency using a full suite of tools not released for public use/modification.Read more

I've been working on some deploy recipes for Drupal, built upon the great Python tool Fabric. Drush still does most of the heavy lifting, but Fabirc gives me a nice way of putting a several commands together into a single deploy or development workflow command.
I'm packaging these recipes together in a set of modules called Neoprene. It's pretty alpha code at this stage but someone on another group suggested some folks in this channel might find this useful.Read more
