Combining CircleCI, GKE and Houston to get code to customers simply, safely, and quickly.
This post was written by Mark McBride, CEO at Turbine Labs, Inc.
Engineering teams don’t exist to manually execute release processes or stare nervously at production metrics; they exist to build and deliver products to customers. We develop release processes to ensure the products we’ve built are good, understanding that the time spent on this assurance comes at a price: time spent thinking about releasing is time spent not thinking about product. At Turbine Labs, we spend a lot of time thinking about how to improve this balance, and it’s why we built Houston. Here we’ll show you how to create a high quality, low overhead continuous release pipeline for web applications using a combination of CircleCI, GKE and Houston.
