Development practices have come a long way since the time of Waterfall. Development shops have progressed through Agile methodologies and have built a culture of continuously delivering value to their customers, both internally and externally. Many shops have also since implemented Scrum and are experimenting with containerization technologies.
Continuous Integration (CI) helps developers to speed up the application development life cycle by automating build, test and deployment of the application. Continuous Delivery (CD), helps developers in shipping code from source control systems to the production environment.
You can have both CI and CD, for free, by using Shippable.In this tutorial, I'll go over what's available for free, when you need to upgrade and how to upgrade.
Since the latest release of our platform, I have been reviewing the customer experience to make sure customers find it easy to onboard and get to a green build for their projects. After analyzing the problems customers run into, I noticed five situations that are fairly common. I want to share these and ways to avoid them so you can get up and running as quickly as possible.
We have significantly updated the Shippable platform with several new features. Hence this blog post is deprecated.
Check out our blog - Deploy your first Continuous Deployment Pipeline, that uses Docker Hub for image registry and Amazon EC2 Container Service (ECS) for container service.
If you've thought about running containers on AWS, today's a big day. With the introduction of Amazon EC2 Container Registry today, you can now establish and run a container-based pipeline entirely within AWS. And with Shippable, setting up and running that pipeline with full visibility, history and control has never been easier.
During AWS re:Invent 2015, we announced our preview release for integration between Shippable and Amazon EC2 Container Service (Amazon ECS). Today, we're thrilled to announce that we've added integration with Amazon EC2 Container Registry (Amazon ECR), as well. With this integration, Shippable customers can now pull and push Docker images from Amazon ECR as part of their Shippable CI builds and deploy them with Shippable Formations across multiple clusters in Amazon ECS, without ever having to manually update a Task Definition yourself. Shippable automatically updates your ECS task definitions with the latest image information based on your CI builds and either automatically deploys or deploys with a single-click when you're ready.

Today's a big day! We're thrilled to announce the integration of our Shippable CI/CD platform with Amazon EC2 Container Service (ECS) and the coming integration with Amazon EC2 Container Registry (ECR). With this integration, Shippable customers can easily deploy the Docker images generated from their Shippable CI processes into Amazon's services for managing and running containers.
