DEPRECATED BLOG:

We have significantly updated the Shippable platform with several new features. Hence most of the content in this blog is deprecated. Given below are updated blogs for the series - How to deploy to Elastic Beanstalk

  1. Part 1 covers source code deployment to AWS Elastic Beanstalk using a Node.JS app
  2. Part 2 covers deploying a Docker container to AWS Elastic Beanstalk using a Node.JS app

For the latest information, refer to our documentation and/or open a support issue, if you have questions.

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

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.

After standing at our sponsor table for 2 days, we were super tired and decided to grab a drink at the bar downstairs. I was playing around with my phone... reading random articles... when I decided to google our company name. In that one moment, my tiredness was replaced by cheer as I saw this. 

As they say, buying your competitors' name on Google Adwords is the sincerest form of flattery. Kudos to the Shippable team!

The world this week (in CI/CD/devops)

Welcome to this week's edition of the news, blog posts and articles about continuous integration / deployment and software development in general that we found interesting!

  • eBay engineering describes the evolution of eBay's CI system. eBay started off with an individual CI/Jenkins Master setup for each dev.  eBay used a dedicated VM for each developer (each Jenkins instance had a dedicated VM). This got inefficient pretty fast resulting in underutilized VMs as well as too many VMs in general. Read about eBay's CI solution and how they arrived at it.
