12 Factor will change the way that you develop software and how you think about software. The first step, though, is to recognize that we have a problem — traditional methods of developing software are unmanageable. They do not easily scale. Dependencies are hard to isolate. Concurrency is hard. Logging and monitoring are an after thought. Backing services are closely coupled. Servers and applications follow the 4-H model — we raise them with loving, devoted care until it’s time to slaughter them.

12 Factor addresses these issues and many more.

This session discusses the 12 Factors and why they are important. 12 Factor adopts best practices related to application and infrastructure support and development, including:

Parity between development and productionLoggingStateless servicesCodebase/SCMSeparation of build & run stages

Seriously… 12 Factor will change the way you think about application development and support.
