That's an interesting question, and not something many people are usually willing to describe in detail because it might reveal systems or processes that might be used to attack a site (or staging server).
I, however, am not afraid of such things. It's not that my sites or systems are invulnerable to attack (I do my best, but I don't know everything), but I actually appreciate attacks on my systems. I frequently read server logs so I can discover the new and interesting ways sites are attacked so I can build protections against them.
So, I think I can articulate my process from development to deployment. That will take some time though. Right now I'm in the middle of building an SEO extension to help out a customer of mine, and it's going through A LOT of testing. I can use that to take some video of staging tests.
When I'm done with it, I'm planning on making it free - and taking one of my paid extensions and making it free (because they work together) and challenging other Joomla extension developers to do the same (release a high quality extension for free) to solve a performance, functionality, or SEO and release it as a gift to the community.
I'm thinking of calling it (the challenge) "A Love Letter to Joomla"..... When I'm done with that, I'll write a staging article and make an accompanying video.
