Shippable India team and the DevOpsDays 2015 event

Team spirits were high this September at Shippable's Bangalore office in anticipation of DevOpsDays India 2015, organized by Emerging Technologies Trust and Bangalore office's first event as conference sponsors! In addition to activities around getting the new office in shape and interviews set-up everyday for the engineering team's expansion, we had quite a lot on our plates. From getting the banners, standees, stickers, business cards printed to sourcing t-shirts but we pulled it off just in time! What made it even more fun was Avi's presence in Bangalore during the first half of September. In fact, he had a scheduled talk at the conference but I'll get back to that later in the blog (saving the best for last!).

The great DevOps 2.0 debate of 2015

 

Welcome to the great DevOps 2.0 debate! The topic under discussion is - Why is Shippable calling themselves a DevOps 2.0 platform? 

We love Twitterstorms as much as the next person. After all, who can forget the epic exchange between John Legere and The Donald? Or closer to home, the banter between Docker's @shykes and the Coreos folks? Everyone loves a good old-fashioned flame war.

Our announcement on Wednesday ruffled some feathers, albeit important ones. We said that our new product line, Shippable Formations, delivers what we are coining as a DevOps 2.0 platform. And then all hell broke loose. Even Patrick Deboisthe Father of DevOps, was confused and skeptical -

There was a lot of this going around.

DevOps 2.0 is here - Announcing Shippable Formations and enhanced CI capabilities

 

We are excited to announce the release of significant enhancements to Shippable Continuous Integration and the introduction of a new product, Shippable Formations. Together, these two products transcend traditional DevOps and take it to the next level, to DevOps 2.0.

DEPRECATED BLOG:

We have significantly updated the Shippable platform with several new features. Hence most of the content in this blog is deprecated. For the latest information, refer to our documentation and/or open a support issue, if you have questions.


 

We are very excited to announce the release of our new product line, Shippable Formations. Along with Shippable CI/CD, this is the first step in our journey towards enabling DevOps 2.0 - frictionless Dockerized pipelines from code to production without the need for any DevOps code or scripts.

Over the last several months, we've received a lot of feedback on our Shippable CI/CD product. One thing resonated above all - as customers start adopting Docker-based workflows and creating complex, multi-container applications, they were looking for something beyond CI/CD. Most of them were creating these workflows themselves, and this was taking valuable time away from what they really wanted to do, namely work on their product. 

As early adopters of Docker, we had created many internal workflows and processes that helped us ship faster. Shippable Formations is the productized version of all that we've learnt from shipping to production 5x-20x a day.

Monitor your upstream Docker image dependencies with Lighthouse

Have you ever wasted your time debugging a broken build only to realize a few frustrated hours later that it was due to something that changed in one of the images you depend on?

Lighthouse to your rescue!

Lighthouse is available to all Shippable users for free! Using this feature, you can 'watch' any public Docker image or any private image you have access to from any registry and get notified via email when that image is updated.
