Thanks to all our customers who were patient with us as we ironed out the migration from our V1 platform to V2 platform. We hit some unexpected road bumps due to key management, expired tokens, etc but most of the resulting chaos has settled down now and we’re (mostly) back to business as usual.
I am sure you will love all the new stuff that V2 brings to the table, but I will write another blog post for that very shortly. In this one, I want to focus on explaining some changes between V1 and V2 and why we made them.
SEATTLE – September 9, 2014 – Shippable, a Seattle-based startup focused on increasing developer efficiency, today announced its version 2.0 release – a new enterprise-grade delivery platform that helps software teams innovate faster by docker-izing their workflows and automating application lifecycles from code to production. The new platform is the first for containerized workflows and is engineered to leverage Docker containers to the fullest, increasing agility in the software development lifecycle (SDLC). Its rich feature set includes on-demand, containerized dev/test environments that are exact replicas of the production environment, a continuous delivery pipeline for application containers, and versioning of application containers with a one-click upgrade or rollback to any version.
“Container-based development is becoming essential for DevOps teams because it enables application development to move more quickly and efficiently,” said Al Hilwa, program director, application development software, IDC. “Enterprises adopting agile practices and seeking options for continuous development and delivery will find that workflow containerization solutions like Shippable will ultimately lead to better software quality.”
At Shippable, we believe that DevOps is a set of cultural and technical principles used to organize around ongoing improvement. Shippable Minions enable software teams to focus on what matters: the product. We simplify shipping code in any language, to any cloud. With just a little integration, we can work seamlessly with many other software services.
In this post, we'll walk you through an example with Slack, one of our most requested integrations. This is a generic approach that can be used for notifications on any project.
