Capistrano is all about automating repetitive remote processes, including (but certainly not limited to) deployment of Rails applications. This three-hour tour (not guaranteed to be shipwreck-free!) will guide you through the process of writing your first Capistrano recipe, writing custom tasks, and even show you how to customize the deployment process using Capistrano 2.0's new "deployment strategies." You'll learn how to take advantage of the Capistrano shell, and how to harness Capistrano for a variety of non- deployment tasks. Come get a whole new take on remote process automation!
