Do you like the idea of repeatable, automated Perl application deployment? Me, too! This talk will show how to make Chef play nice with Perl. You'll learn how to weave together some great tools like perlbrew, local::lib, and carton to isolate your apps and manage them all with Chef.
5:00pm–5:40pm Thursday, 07/19/2012
Whether you use Chef, Puppet, or just basic shell scripting, there seems to be no clear way to incrementally develop and test scripts to provision a system. In this talk I'll introduce using local virtual machines managed by Vagrant as a way to achieve this, shortening the feedback loop and increasing productivity and confidence of configuration management script development.
1:40pm–2:20pm Thursday, 07/19/2012
Web developers dream of continuous deployment: new code in production without a hitch. In this talk I'll cover the full story from building deployable code through working out a build and release process through continuous integration, automation, and continuous deployment. We'll also look at deployment velocity and why CD might not be for you.

As applications become more distributed, virtual and elastic, many organizations are losing their grip on application performance and scalability. This session will use customer case studies to look at the biggest performance bottlenecks of the past year, as well as best practices around finding and troubleshooting them.
