January 2016 ***Not Beginner*** Meetup

WP From A to V 

Jamie Oastler is the lead WordPress developer at Innovapost who has been steadily working his way down the WordPress solution stack from front-end designer, plugin developer, solution architect to DevOps resource since ~ WP 2.3. He also occasionally updates his Idealien Studios site. Jamie will be presenting on hanging up his cowboy coder hat, the collection of DevOps best practices for WordPress he has learned since doing so. Come on out to learn about the alphabet soup of cool tools you should add to your toolkit:

• Getting started with Vagrant / Virtual Box

• Overview of Ansible – The best IT automation tool out there

• Using them together to build local dev environments with prod parity

• How to handle delightful deploys of a 12-factor WordPress architecture

This is a meetup in our “Not Beginner” series. This series of talks is for WordPress (or related) presentations that are not at a beginner level.  Anyone at any experience level is welcome to attend, but there will be an assumption in the presentations and discussion that attendees have some knowledge of WordPress.
