“This is the way software should be developed”
How Steelcase Changed Everything By Adopting Docker And Codefresh
The conversation started because the team had run into another issue with version configuration. Damon Zirkler, a solutions architect at Steelcase pulled the team together. The engineers were having a hard time controlling multiple versions and configurations of their software across all the developer’s machines. This led to bugs when trying to review code, pushing to staging, and production. Even if the engineers all had the same version of say, MySQL, the default configuration between Windows, OS X, and Linux varied enough to cause issues.
For any organization who has adopted Docker, this is a common story. Once Steelcase started providing standard images for MySQL, they also found they could containerize everything and completely eliminate variance between all the developer machines.
