Auto Deploy Code from Github

I came across a great walk through of how to deploy your code from GitHub automatically.

Having managed a large number of web applications derived from various code repositories, I see the value in this.

I used to write some pretty complex scripts to do this automatically with SVN across 20+ Amazon EC2 instances.

You can configure your EC2 AMIs to automatically update upon new instances launch.  Great way to load-balance code.

I’m going to set this up for my 5+ wordpress installs, so that they get updated when WordPress gets update.

Good to know how to do for the future, with my other web applications.
