In this episode we have a round­table dis­cus­sion on deploy­ing your web­site. You’ve cre­at­ed an awe­some web­site, now how to do you it deployed to a pub­lic web serv­er so the rest of the world can see it? And more impor­tant­ly, how can you do this with­out tears?

We dis­cuss Git as a ver­sion con­trol sys­tem, and why we use it for our web­sites. Then we move on to dis­cus­sion a num­ber of deploy­ment strate­gies and tools, from buddy.works to Deploy­Bot to rolling your own via shell scripts, if that’s your thing.

Ulti­mate­ly, we’re just look­ing for an effi­cient, deter­min­is­tic way to exact­ly repli­cate a web­site that’s in local devel­op­ment on our com­put­er to a live pro­duc­tion envi­ron­ment. Hope­ful­ly with­out any hic­cups along the way, and a good way to roll back if the sh*t hits the fan.
