On the Ibuildings techPortal today they've posted the latest episode of their DPC Radio podcast series (as recorded at this year's Dutch PHP Conference). This episode is Rob Allen's talk about web application deployment - "Stress-free Deployment".

This talk will concentrate on the various strategies you can use to ensure that developing and releasing new features to a live website is stress-free. Firstly we will look at how organising your source code into branches can provide confidence and allow for features to go-live in any order. We will the consider the mechanics of deploying a new version of the website to the server, ensuring that we can repeat the process the same way every time. Finally we will look at how to roll back a deployment easily and quickly when something goes wrong.

As always, you can either listen via the in-page player or by downloading the mp3 (90MB!). You can also find his slides over on his blog.
