Good Kaizen – Statamic
A blog about doing good and getting better at life, code, design, and business. We do our best to write in a way that clients will find valuable.
Kaizen is the practice of continuous improvement.
We recently had a Statamic project that needed to make use of Envoyer.io to enable zero-downtime deployments. If you don't know, Statamic is a great flat-file CMS, not a static site generator (at least not yet) that allows your content (and everything else) to be versioned controlled.
I’ve been a fan of Statamic, and the guys behind it, since its inception in 2012. It has continued to mature, and when I learned that v2 was going to be rewritten on Laravel 5.1 I knew I had to dig a bit deeper, especially into what developing for the new codebase would be like!
Performance can be expensive and complicated to self-manage when your website has a large number of assets. Here’s how we used AWS S3 and Imgix to boost more easily performance on the Laravel News website.
