Special Guest Dan Garfield of Codefresh
Special guest Dan Garfield, VP of Marketing at Codefresh joins host Drew Ogryzek to discuss continuous deployment with Codefresh, a CI/CD (continuous integration and deployment) platform with a focus on providing end-to-end automation for everything containers and Kubernetes. Historically looking at how automation has been done, there has been a lot of scripting, and a lot of duplication of work; people are building the same machines over and over again, with different projects.
Codefresh aims at taking a strong pipeline, such as the the Netflix pipeline, whose development was an effort of millions of dollars of resources, and making that available for everyone to plug into in both a flexible, but yet prescriptive automation platform.
Recognizing that there are universal standards for container deployments, the dream of Codefresh is to have an automation platform that emphasizes ease of use, while still allowing access to customize auto-generated configuration.
The Codefresh team has coined the term "breaking the glass," to capture the concept of customizing these auto-generated configuration files.
Having started in 2014, Codefresh launched general availability in January of this year, and has been growing very quickly since.
With a strong emphasis on the user experience, Codefresh engages its customers, offering direct access via slack or scheduled phone support with developers, even at the free tier; which offers up to 200 builds/month and 5 concurrently. Builds/month can be increased by introducing Codefresh to your friends - something this podcaster wholeheartedly recommends.

Garfield says understanding your audience and empathizing well with the problems that people face is important, and that Codefresh wants people, startups, and organizations to use the Codefresh platform to be successful.
Recognizing that by providing an awesome free tier experience, it makes it easy to adopt, completely free for smaller shops who don't require more resources (and my not yet be earning revenue), that when organizations grow to want more environments, more than five concurrent builds, and scale up their builds per month, they'll be able to grow with Codefresh.
ConFoo is a conference for developers that will take place on December 4th-6th at the Sheraton Wall Center.
