Developing and Deploying Magento with Composer: Best Practices
Composer is the new tool for managing extensions and other PHP dependencies in a Magento project. But how exactly does it fit into development, continuous integration, and build processes? How do you use it during a deployment? This presentation will teach you how to avoid common mistakes when using Composer to manage the dependencies of your Magento project. We will highlight the different options to be used during deployments vs development installations. We’ll also guide you through setting up a professional build and deployment process in the Cloud or on your own hosting, and how to minimize risks of downtime related to third-party dependencies and potential errors.
