This talk will cover nonstandard Rails deployment and continuous integration from real-ife examples. Deployment and continous integrations are areas in Rails that are poorly documented and rarely reflect real-life scenarios. Although there are well-known recipes that cover Rails deployment on various hosting solutions, what if your organization does not allow you to deploy directly to the production system? What if your deployment strategies differ from staging to production, how do your customize your Capistrano recipes ?

This talk will cover various deployment recipes using Capistrano that were encountered in real-life scenarios. We will also cover continuous integration approaches using off-the-shelf components such as the CI framework, cruise control, and how to integrate with Capistrano.
