Posted by Avniel Dravid on July 23, 2014

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.

Buying your competitor's name on Google Adwords is the sincerest form of flattery. Thank you, Codeship!

Posted by Manisha Sahasrabudhe on June 12, 2014

Our team attended Dockercon at Westin SF earlier this week.... it was a super fun, informative conference and we had a great time. More on that in a blog post coming up soon.
