Sling Applications - a DevOps perspective

Sling is an established web application framework, with a multitude of core features and extensions. It has a very productive inner loop, with OSGi bundle deployment, JCR content editing and live configuration updates. The less-told story is how an application should be assembled, configured, deployed, and monitored.

In this talk we will present the main approaches for bootstrapping, deploying, updating, and monitoring Sling-based applications, based on Open Source tools and libraries.

The participants will gain a better understanding of the options available for managing their own Sling-based application and will be able to minimise the effort needed to manage such an application.
