Much more Eggs than Bacon: A Development Environment Cookbook

Abstract: Have you ever wrote code that worked when you wrote it, but failed when it went to QA? Or staging? Or production? Learning how to build a high quality development environment is a serious undertaking and will involve a lot of trial and error — unless you come to this talk. Having spent the better part of the last year prepping, implementing, rolling out, maintaining, stabilizing, and growing a large scale development environment platform, I will show you the ropes. The real secret to building a system everyone can love: it’s all about making eggs, not bacon.
