Welcome to our first Shippable Podcast. In this installment, Dr. Nicole Forsgren from Chef Software and co-author (with Gene Kim and Jez Humble) of the State of DevOps 2016 Report, discusses the trends she discovered in this year's report, how DevOps has evolved in the past few years, and how organizations are successfully harnessing DevOps to drive application delivery agility.
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!).
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 Debois, the Father of DevOps, was confused and skeptical -
There was a lot of this going around.
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.
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.
