The Learning Rails screencast series that Christopher Haupt and I have
been creating has finally reached its 22nd episode, Deployment.

It was a real challenge trying to figure out how to make this as
simple as possible while still conveying something useful. We ended up
choosing to use Passenger for the app server, which went very
smoothly, enabling us to spend most of the time on the basics of
Capistrano and deployment.
I'm sure there are some ways this can be improved, and I'd be grateful
for any feedback.
