Aegir on Docker: Faster Development, Better Testing, Easier Deployment.

In the last few days We've been able to get Aegir working in a docker container.

See http://github.com/aegir-project/dockerfiles for the code and https://hub.docker.com/r/aegir/hostmaster/ for the images.  There are example docker-compose.yml file in the codebase that you can use to launch aegir really quickly.

Collaborative Configuration with DevShop, Aegir & Ansible Galaxy

With the release of the first beta of DevShop we completed the switch to using Ansible Galaxy Roles, which are open source, collaborative infrastructure. Up until the last alpha release, DevShop installed via it's own custom playbook.

Now, each component of DevShop is broken out into separate Ansible Galaxy Roles, extending Jeff Geerling's playbooks.

Our Mission is Easy Open Source Infrastructure

Software evolves over time as any technology. When people invent new things, they usually launch new businesses for those inventions. They patent them. They protect their intellectual property for as long as they can.

At some point, proprietary technology becomes so prolific, that the need for agreed upon standards becomes necessary. Edison wouldn't have sold nearly as many light bulbs if they didn't standardize the size of the sockets and the shape of the two prongs, among other more important things like voltage.

Bats of a Feather: HubDrop, DevShop, & Aegir at DrupalCon Austin

I'm on the plane headed to my 4th DrupalCon, and this one is looking like a good time.  

So much is happening this year. Drupal 8 is getting closer and closer to release, more and more Drupal businesses and services are being launched, and we continue to develop our Drupal products.

While my session on DevShop wasn't accepted, I am personally involved in a lot of BoF sessions this year.

Introducing HubDrop.org: bridging the gap between Drupal.org and GitHub

Introducing HubDrop.org

This project is simply something I wanted to do. No one paid for it. I built it in my spare time as a way to refine the knowledge I learned over the last few years about Symfony, Vagrant, and Chef. I want to grow this tool, but it takes time and a server, which both == money.

So I'm opening up a GitTip account to raise funding for development of hubdrop.io.

But before I do that, I wanted to formally introduce HubDrop to the Drupal aocmmunity.
