Introducing CircleCI Academy

Last week, we launched our free, developer-focused learning platform, CircleCI Academy! Through our different technical training courses, both new and seasoned CircleCI users can learn the basics of building, testing, and deploying on CircleCI, and learn how to use our features to increase speed to market. Our platform includes 20+ lessons and resources, spread across three courses: General Developer Training, CI/CD 101 Workshop, and Docker Layer Caching - with more on the way! Read the announcement post here.

Enable pipelines to access new CircleCI features

Do you have a project on CircleCI that you started before September 2018? If so, you might not have pipelines enabled for your project. Enabling pipelines will allow you to access our new UI and use features like reusable config and new API endpoints. Read this doc to learn how to enable pipelines for your project.

New Windows machines

Windows XL (16 CPU, 60 GB) and 2XL (32 CPU, 128 GB) machines are now available! Any users on a Performance plan can use these machines by assigning a resource class to their jobs.
