Drupal's "normal" development workflow is highly unfriendly to the Developer, with many idiosyncrasies that are not in tune with the workflow a modern web developer expects in 2015. Fortunately, all of this problems can be solved in different ways, and Drupal installation profiles and Drush makefiles provide a path to a repeatable deployment process that frees the developer from configuration management and constant differences between development, staging, and production environments. Come and learn about:

- How to set up your site's codebase as an install profile-style repository
- How to use Drush makefiles to track and update contributed modules
- How to create working site installations based on your profile
- How to script a repeatable deployment process using these tools
