Just finished watching your Capistrano screencast and everything is really coming together for me now. Been worried that it was gonna be cumbersome (as the cowboy coder that I am) so I've been avoiding to read up on it. Super happy that you've given me these tools to progress my development skills. If I hadn't been a fan of Roots since long before I seriously doubt that I would ever leave the security and comfort of the ways I knew before. Thanks a lot for making me smile.
The topics and tools in this screencast won't work unless you're deploying to a *nix based server that you have SSH and root access to. Don't expect to be able to use Capistrano to deploy to a shared host or a Windows server.
This screencast also doesn't cover server setup such as configuring a web server, PHP, or installing programs like Node and Grunt. Some basic familiarity with server administration is probably needed before using a tool like this.
