Improving your Drupal development workflow


There isn't anything major but a basic understanding of tools like Docker, Vagrant, CI/CD can be helpful to relate.

Session details

A well-tuned development with the right set of tools for a project improves the productivity, aligns your team expectations and helps to define your agency's development culture. Improving your development workflow has the business impact of saving time and money by reducing wasted attention and keeping the focus on building new applications.

The session is set to help define the right suite of tools which might be useful for your agency and your development team. A lot of tools and applications have emerged for developing and deploying applications. A well-curated suite of tools will help teams to manage clear expectations and allow any one team member to pick up where someone else has left which helps to better management and automation of the development process.

In the session, I will be discussing:

  • Tools which can be used for Local development
  • The Composer workflow
  • Continuous integration 
  • Deploying Drupal applications with automated tools

The session is intended to be useful for teams to streamline their development workflow and process to automate their building and deploying applications.

A basic knowledge of tools like Vagrant, Docker and CI tools like Jenkins, CircleCI or GitlabCI will be useful to better understand the topics being covered in the session.

In the end, the attendees will have an understanding of the various development and deployment tools with their pros and cons which will help them decide the right set of tools for their project requirements.

Drupal apprentices

The best people to train new developers are developers

The Drupal Apprenticeship Scheme will be running a London intake in March. If you are interested in hiring an apprentice or know someone who would benefit from the scheme please get in touch via the link below.

  • Created and run by experienced developers
  • Teaches core skills and best practice
  • Extensive support for businesses and teams

We are also really keen to hear from people who might be interested in mentoring, training and helping us to develop and review training materials to make sure they stay absolutely current and relevant.
