Containers have become the standard executable format for cloud applications. But, changing how you build, test, and deploy code is a big deal for any engineering team.
Semaphore has been around since 2012, and our Customer Success team has worked with hundreds of organizations as they moved to a container-based architecture. Many more are yet to migrate.
We've seen it time and time again: adopting containers takes time.
There are many moving parts, and it's not clear how to make the timeless practice of Continuous Integration and Delivery (CI/CD) more productive, not less.
Eventually, it does get easier to onboard new team members, run tests reliably, be cloud-agnostic, and build new services. But to get there, you have to build internal know-how from several books and dozens of blog posts.
We wrote this book to help you build reliable and fast CI/CD pipelines for containers — in days, not weeks or months.
We believe the book will be useful to:
- Senior developers who are beginning their journey into microservices or cloud-native architecture, or need to migrate an existing system to Kubernetes.
- CTOs and Directors of Engineering who need a clear vision of what a reliable, high-velocity CI/CD pipeline looks like and what it takes to build one.
I want to thank the book co-authors:
- Jerome Petazzoni, a leading instructor on containers, creator of container.training, and a former Docker core engineer.
- Tomas Fernandez, whom you might already know from Semaphore blog as an author of some great posts.
We combined our knowledge in CI/CD and containers to bring you a practical guide to shipping high-quality cloud apps rapidly and consistently.
