Exploring the Aegir Ecosystem

Development and Code
Experience Level: 

As anyone who has ventured into managing multiple drupal sites and platforms with Aegir knows, its an incredibly powerful tool that comes with a learning curve to use effectively.

On top of that it has a very active contrib ecosystem that can extend its capabilities in powerful new ways

This session aims to connect a few of the existing dots by covering topics such as
*The different flavours of Aegir - BOA, Devshop, Valkyrie
*Getting up and running with Aegir in the cloud.
*Local development environments using Vagrant.
*Remote importing production sites
*Different approaches to building sites under version control to use as platforms within Aegir
*Workflows for Dev/Stage/Prod using Aegir.
*Building SaaS Drupal products using Aegir.

This is intended to be a roundup of the various projects and advanced techniques surrounding working with Aegir to evaluate where its at, what we can do with whats out there already and what still needs to be done to make it even better.

It will not be a code heavy session although some familiarity with what Aegir does beforehand may be helpful as we will be covering more advanced usage topics.
