This talk introduces the various strategies you can use to ensure that developing and releasing new features to a live website is stress-free.

Firstly we will look at how organising your source code into branches can provide confidence and allow for features to go-live in any order. We will the consider the mechanics of deploying a new version of the website to the server, ensuring that we can repeat the process the same way every time. Finally we will look at how to roll back a deployment easily and quickly when something goes wrong.

Great tips, even for seasoned folks. Loved the bit about naming branches for ticket numbers.
