In this tutorial, we will take a Drupal application, prepare the codebase for production, and deploy that codebase to a production environment on Acquia Cloud.
Using best practices for development is important, especially for enterprise sites that "can't fail". Implementing processes like automated testing and continuous integration can be difficult, but they have a tremendous impact on the quality and stability of software. They are worth the investment.
This tutorial walks you through the deployment process for a Drupal 8 application on Acquia Cloud. It includes four lessons:
- Preparing for Production
- Generating a Deployment Artifact
- Release the Kraken (code)
- Post Code Deploy
