Transitioning to TLS – web standards dreamboat @marcosc writes up how he did it (and “triggered a cascade of shit”)
Talking of which, Switching to HTTPS – Jeremy Keith documents the intuitive 768-step process he went through.

Upgrade Insecure Requests is a draft spec by @mikewest (feedback welcome!) so an author can tell the browser that subresource requests (`*<img>`, etc) should be loaded via HTPPS, even if the code just says “HTTP”.
