RSVP Now: The Future of App Deployment

By Ninh Bui on September 30th, 2014

Phusion USA Roadtrip 2014

Phusion will be traveling across the US this October to give tech talks on their future vision of app deployment. We’ve been working on some pretty exciting stuff and our friends over at AirBnB and ConstantContact have generously offered to host us over at their San Francisco and Waltham offices respectively to talk about this:

Writing an app is one thing, deploying it to a production ready environment and keeping it online in the face of countless potential scenarios of adversity is an entirely different beast. Not only does it currently still involve a fair bit of expertise when it comes to unix-fu, it also involves keeping an eye out on the latest software and configure them properly to combat things like security breaches. This is all generally considered tedious and cumbersome work, and often outside the domain of knowledge of developers. Wouldn’t it be great if we didn’t need to go through as many hoops as we need to do today and make it more developer friendly?

This talk will go over the most important steps currently involved in setting up a production environment for your a web app and will propose alternative approaches as well in the form of new software solutions developed by Phusion. This talk will focus on app deployment, monitoring and server provisioning, but will also touch upon topics such as UI design and UX as the latter plays an important part in making things more accessible. More specifically, we’ll discuss Docker, Polymer, Node, Rails, Phusion Passenger, Union Station and much more.

RSVP to attend!
