Here's the topic for the February meetup:
We've had a few requests to do a presentation on capistrano and deployment.
We've got the night all planned out!
Kelly Felkins will present some tricks and methods for securing and managing deployment using capistrano. He will be presenting what he's learned deploying around 5 to 6 small business sites with capistrano. Kelly's been working with capistrano before it was know as capistrano and it went by it's previous moniker, switchtower.
We've got Chad Woolly, whose in town from Tucson, is going to be talking about his experience with continous intergration and their use of capistrano. They've done some really clever things with capistrano. He'll talk on some tricks he's learned along the way and some best practices.
We've got our own native Berkeley resident Coda Hale who'll be speaking on deploying Rails in the large and how to answer the question, "can Rails scale? and can it be used for large, high traffic sites?"
Hope to see you there!
