Streamlining Drupal Development

I really appreciate the idea of streamlining Drupal. During my experience deploying sites using various cms's i realized in comparison how much extra time Drupal requires just to get the essential functionality in place that the typical site would need. I have since implemented my own Drupal recipes and use tools like drush and plan to make use of shared configs, profiles along with git. I have a few big projects ahead and can't wait to put some more efficient practices to use.
