Everything is easy now. We start a VM instead of racking a server, we start a container instead of starting a VM, or we run a function instead of running a container. We can use dozens of SaaS providers so that we can focus on the things that are actually core to our business. It’s great, but the multitude of tools and services makes it hard to build effective delivery pipelines. Until today.
Escape is a new tool that is meant to bring state of the art release engineering to the cloud! Escape is a recently open sourced tool (https://www.ankyra.io/blog/escape-open-sourced/) that can be used to add release engineering, life-cycle management and Continuous Delivery processes to software platforms and their artefacts. In this presentation, Bart Spaans will talk about the problems Escape is trying to solve, how it goes about doing that and how organisations can use Escape to make everything reproducible, identifiable, testable and automateable. Free again to focus on business value. Escape.
