Automated visual testing: Zero coding that will save you thousands of dollars

Lets first calculate how much it costs to manually test an app!
If a person charges $17 per hour to test,
If the person takes 14 hours to test the whole website,
If every 2 weeks, new security updates are being released or new features are being added,
that is equal to $238 for 1 sprint(2 weeks)
$6,188 per year (26 sprints)
If the website has 4 years of maintenance work, that sums up to $24,752

Development workflow with github & Acquia cloud

We are using github for our website development.
Moving to acquia cloud required us to move to a new docroot git structure different than what we currently have.

As our project is open source, We needed to be on github because of our workflow which is dependent on github pull requests.

Thanks to Peter Wolanin for the blog on "Using git subtree to Make a Distro Your Docroot" https://www.acquia.com/blog/using-git-subtree-make-distro-your-docroot

Followed below steps to setup the environment.
git subtree is available without installation

My first talk at UN - on edX @ Drupal NYC camp

Last weekend was amazing. Awesome camp organized by New York Drupal community, hosted at United Nations.

Stopped by security at entrance, for wearing a Hoodie with the print "I fucking love science". Had to remove it to proceed further ;)
Met awesome people.
Perfect weather for weekend.
Partied all night. City never sleeps.
Rode Citi bike on streets of NYC, from UN to bus station. People were friendly. Taxis weren't ;)

Got a very good response for my talk on edX. http://www.nyccamp.org/session/open-edx-drupal-front-end
