Session description

Managing hundreds of WordPress installs across development, staging and production environments can be a tricky business. In this session, I will show you the evolution of our process to automate the management of more than 350 installations. With this process and the tools we implement, we handle updating, syncing content and managing code between several different environments. I will provide an overview of our development workflow, deployment methods and database management tactics; I will also provide some simple code tricks and tips.
