Increasingly developers are being pushed to understand the operations world of web application deployments as continuous delivery gains importance in the “new normal” world of agile developer workflows.

However, there is also a growing understanding that servers are better off being treated as immutable, to avoid the various complications that arise from constantly evolving/changing configurations.

This talk will allow us to understand all these concepts in order to achieve immutable servers and zero-downtime deployments.
