A few days ago, we woke up to the sad news that the Thoughtworks team had decided to shut down Snap CI in August. We have the greatest respect for Thoughtworks and their mission and want to convey our best wishes to the team for their next adventure.
If you're a current Snap CI customer, Shippable is a great fit as a replacement CI/CD platform. It is completely free to try us out and we are happy to offer help with migrating your CI configuration to Shippable. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
How Shippable compares to other CI/CD providers
Please read CI/CD and DevOps expert Yegor Bugayengo's blog ranking of CI providers where he ranks Shippable as the top platform. Shippable is also ranked first among all hosted CI providers on Slant.co.
While these rankings focus on CI, Shippable also provides value beyond CI by offering a complete platform for DevOps workflows, including deploying a versioned package into a series of environments, release management, approval workflows, etc.
