    I was surprised this was mostly focused on code. Also while I’ll agree this is good, it misses out step 1 on getting someone to a less cowboy-code site. Install multisite, get the multisite clone duplicator plugin, and have them make changes to a literal copy of their site. This makes people understand at a high-level the concept, whilst not necessarily mitigating all risks, for option and content faffing, trialling new plugins (where most non-devs are at to begin with). That provides options and non-complex plugins (mostly free) to help people wrap their heads around the benefits as a jumping off point. Just my two-cents.

Do you dread deploying new WordPress code for clients? *raises hand* It’s weird to feel that way. Deploying WordPress code isn’t rocket science after all (or maybe it is and no one told me!).

It tends to come down to opening our favorite FTP client and pressing the upload button. Easy-peasy, right? Of course, not! (Things are never that easy…) You’re also refreshing the web page in the browser while praying that you don’t get a white screen of death.

It doesn’t have to be that way. You can deploy your WordPress code with confidence! It just comes down to creating the proper workflows and the right automation.

This is what you’ll learn in this talk. We’ll go over what makes a successful deployment workflow. You’ll also get an overview of the tools that you can use to automate deployments. It’s everything that you need to get started on your quest for safer WordPress deployments!
