It's always good to start from scratch ... sometimes. We added some new folks to the team this week and as they were setting up their environments, they kept getting an error, "login failed for guest user," with RabbitMQ on Docker. The rest of us had the older version of RabbitMQ, which was working fine.
In April 2013, Shippable launched a Jenkins based CI using virtual machines (VMs). Our plan was simple - take the open source Jenkins, host it in the cloud, and start making money. After all, why would developers spend the time, effort, and money to set it up and maintain it when we were doing it for them for a few dollars a month?
First off, a big thank you to all of those who attended the first Docker Meetup in Bangalore this past Sunday! It is amazing to witness the growth that Docker has experienced in the past few months. We at Shippable, are thrilled to be a part of the growth, and even more excited to integrate with Docker and help streamline the development process.
Grandiose aspirations aside, the event was a total success, with over 40+ Docker fans in attendance. Attendees came equipped with questions about Docker and the Shippable team, along with the dizzying amount of open source knowledge in the room, helped people solve their issues. Questions about basic Docker frameworks and migration across clouds using Docker were answered. Some folks even gave lightening talks on a Docker-related topic of their choosing.
Shippable is proud to be the organizer and host of the first Docker meetup in India on January 19, 2014 in Bengaluru India. Sign up for the meetup here.
We decided to Dockerize our software development workflow a few months ago, and we’ve never looked back since. We can develop faster, integrate faster, release faster. So much so, we also swapped out LXCs and started using Docker containers to run your build and test workloads on Shippable
Containerized software development is the future and it’s happening at Shippable. Come join us for a fun evening and share your Docker experiences with us.
