My Selected Projects » Content Propagation Tool

Project Summary

This was a special "content push" tool that I designed for the Vertex Pharmaceuticals website consulting project back in 2006. They needed a system that would allow them to automate the publishing of web content from discrete development, staging / QA, and production environments and streamline site management as the company's web development team was very small.

The tool we created supported multiple websites and applications, custom database and server configurations, user management, full activity logging, scheduled content pushes, and perhaps most crucially, the ability to quickly rollback changes to a previous 'safe' state in case of deployment problems. In addition, the tool was generic enough that it could have been white labeled and repurposed for other clients if needed.

This tool was used at least until 2012.
