Why our approach to the deployment problem is all wrong

Time slot: 
March 8th, 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM
Room: 
Michigan A/B
Problem: 

Staging and deployment is a known problem in Drupal and I don't need to spell out to anyone the details at this point I don't think. The bigger problem is how we as a community have chosen to address it by creating a false divide between content and configuration in direct opposition to all the trends in Drupal core since time began.

Proposed solution: 

Don't do that. Focus on Drupal 'things' as equal and propose solutions that don't just scratch the itch of developers, but address the problems systemically.
