DevOps with Django: Introduction

This is a start of a series on applying developer/operations techniques to a Django project. In this series we will cover the following:

  • Getting started with Django
  • Defining Dev/Ops and establishing a process
  • Setting up the host
  • Simple, automated deployments with git
  • Basic Continuous Integration w/Jenkins
  • Enterprise Deployment Patterns
  • Operationalizing Django
  • Advanced Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery
  • Configuration Management and Orchestration

There is lots of information available on Dev/Ops. It means many things to many practitioners but to me it's simply automating various aspects of the software development life-cycle. Practically, this means automated testing and deployment. Another important aspect of devops is telemetry, which we cover much later in the series.
