SimplyTest.me is a long-standing, free service that has served Drupal community with an easy-to-use tool for creating Drupal sandboxes. During this case study, we’ll share the motivations behind SimplyTest and how the tool is aims to lower the barrier of entry for those participating in the community. We’ll walk through the various use cases and features of the tool and examine how that helps anyone participate in our community.

After understanding the purpose, we’ll explore the underlying technical architecture of this DevOps focused tool. This includes the distributed computing infrastructure, use of LXC, and the Drupal 7 based provisioning platform.

Based on lessons learned and emerging technology, a roadmap has been created to better serve the community and modernize SimplyTest. I will outline this future vision and present opportunities for community members and companies to learn, contribute, and participate moving forward.

SimplyTest will continue to serve the needs of the community. We’re excited to share the evolution of the service to help better serve those that use the tool.
