Your app is done - now what?
After months of effort, your software is done. Or is it? Very few successful projects in our industry are really 'done'... The success of the software often breeds feature requests, spinoff ideas, scalability concerns, not to mention the continued maintenance of the hosting platform, security, data backup, and so on.
In this session we will look at how to set your project up for continued agility after the bottle of champagne has been opened. Starting with good practices for configuration management, a checklist of the kinds of things for which we need to plan, and ideas for managing your 'maintenance', your project can survive its own success.
