Change Management and Version Control

In this series we uncover how to use powerful tools to speed up and stabilize the Drupal development process. We begin with a thorough walk-through of Git, the version control system. After we cover how to patch modules and upgrade Drupal from one minor version to another, we demonstrate how to use the Features module to version control components of Drupal that aren't typically available to version control. Finally, we wrap up with how to integrate Drush - a powerful command line tool for Drupal - into your workflow to speed up the process of doing everything we discussed earlier in the series.

Some of the key points we'll be covering include:

  1. How to use the command line
  2. How to work with the Features module to capture important database changes and make deployment easier.
  3. How to use Git for version control
  4. Best practices for working on a Drupal team

Who this collection is for

This video collection is mainly for developers who want to improve their deployment strategies and learn how to work on a shared Drupal code base with other developers. However, even if you are not a developer, our coverage of using Features and version control is extremely valuable for deploying Drupal sites and sharing reusable components between projects.

Prerequisites

Even if you are not a developer, you will be able to follow with most of this collection. When we talk about code we do not go into detail about the basic components of the code, so you may want to brush up on some coding basics in the "PHP Programming Basics" collection.
