How can Drupal fulfill its destiny of running a double-digit percentage of the internet? How can the community continue to grow in breadth and depth of talent? How can we continue to win converts from traditional (proprietary) CMSs and keep pace with our Open Source rivals? By empowering our users and putting the human at the top of the stack. Pantheon does this by standardizing and opening up the "magic" of advanced enterprise hosting, bundling the benefit of years of hard-won development experience and making this all ubiquitously and inexpensively available via the Cloud. Whoa mate, that's a lot of buzzwords. In this session we'll blow past the hype and explain each component in the Pantheon stack: what it is, why it matters, and how it can help you take Drupal to the next level. You will learn how we utilize:

  • Git
  • Pressflow
  • Cutting edge server-side tools (e.g. Varnish, Memcached, Apache Solr, Cassandra, Mongo)
  • Hudson
  • BCFG2
  • Cloud Computing (Rackspace, Rimuhosting, others)

To create what we believe is the first completely mapped-out end-to-end Drupal production process.
