Se7en Deadly Deployment Sins

A presentation at Dutch PHP Conference in in Amsterdam, Netherlands by Philipp Krenn

Do you have something to confess? Or are you still in denial — knowing that you're doing something wrong, but you cannot say for sure what it is? In this talk, we'll go through our deployment sins and how to avoid them:

  • Gluttony: Adding all the dependencies — both in size and number.
  • Greed: Yes, I want to use the biggest and slowest application server possible.
  • Sloth: Continuous Deployment or Delivery — who would need that?!
  • Lust: Of course I'm using containers, microservices, and every latest trend for every project!
  • Pride: Once something is in production it's purely an ops problem.
  • Envy: Why should I rely on an external library, when I can lovingly handcraft it all myself?
  • Wrath: Logging and monitoring are for the faint of heart!
