Greg Dunlap talks about the Configuration Management Initiative (CMI) and how it will improve the dev/staging/production process by moving configuration out of the database, and into files that can be easily moved across sites.

Things he talks about

  • What is CMI and what will it do?
  • What has it been like being an initiative lead?

Questions from Twitter

  • (@DamienMcKenna) Damien McKenna
    Why does he feel the current configuration structure is the best option?
  • (@Crell) Larry Garfield
    Are UUIDs and deployment still part of your initiative, or have those fallen by the wayside? Who's picking those up?
