    August 23, 2018 — It’s easy to spend your entire day, heads down, coding projects without thinking twice about other developers around you. We often get too absorbed with completing our immediate deadlines to spend any time considering the future of our projects, the future of our teams.

    Tessa Kriesel: Introduction to Configuration Management

    WordCamp Jackson 2017Speaker: Tessa Kriesel

    December 19, 2017 — The struggle is real. Managing WordPress core settings as well as other settings, like Advanced Custom Fields setup, and carrying those things over to other environments without completely wiping and replacing the entire database is a major pain point.

    Maybe your production environment is holding your content where your client is entering data but your dev or local environments are still being developed and settings & configurations are still changing. You do not want to push up your entire dev database to your production environment and lose all the content your client is entering. That’s where configuration management comes into play!

    We will cover what configuration management is, how you can start to use it and the concepts to take it even further.

    December 10, 2017 — You know that Continuous something-or-other exists. Maybe you have even heard the terms Continuous Integration or Continuous Deployment, but not much more than that. I was in your shoes just a few short months ago. I came, I coded, I conquered. Now I am breaking it all down so you too can feel confident with the basics of continuous integration and deployment.

    I will cover the basics of how to setup Github and Circle CI with WordPress and configure deployment to a staging environment. We will cover continuous-jargon and break down yml and script files to better understand how it works and how you can start to use it with your projects.

    Attend. Absorb. And you too can conquer.
