X-Team Blog:
Automated Deployment in 90 minutes with Docker, AWS and Codeship
Jul 08, 2015 @ 10:22:27

In the X-Team blog they've posted about deployment, specifically combining Docker and Codeship to push an application (in this case a Symfony2 one) out to an Amazon Web Services instance.

Just imagine. It’s Friday afternoon, the team has just finished a new feature which should be deployed to the servers before the weekend. And you are the lucky guy who is responsible for completing the task. Generally, it shouldn’t take more than five minutes. Well, what could possibly go wrong. [...] In the attached video, you’ll find an introduction on how to setup and automate deployment with Docker, AWS Elastic BeansTalk and Codeship in 90 minutes. Don’t miss a Friday night party ever again!

The tutorial comes in the form of a video screencasting the whole process, all the way from setting up the AWS instance and Codeship account out to the configuration and software you'll need to use Docker to build the containers and make the deploy.

Jack Skinner:
In search of simplicity a - story of blog automation
Apr 03, 2015 @ 09:54:37

Jack Skinner has a new post to his site showing how he rewrote his blog aiming for simplicity with the help of Sculpin and Codeship.

I’ve recently relaunched my blog (hi everyone!), I’ll migrate some old content and scrap others. While I clean up the content however I wanted to share how the new site has come into being.

He starts off talking about why he chose to go with Sculpin but doesn't get too much into it as there are "plenty of posts and content around" on how to get started. He then talks about the Codeship service and share some of the initial setup commands and setting up a deployment pipeline to an AWS instance. He makes use of the S3 website hosting, Route53 and CloudFront services for the serving of the actual site. Codeship makes it simple to deploy a new build whenever he updates or adds a new post too.

Fortrabbit.com:
Integrating Codeship with Fortrabbit
Aug 29, 2013 @ 10:30:37

On the Fortrabbit blog today they show how to integrate their service with the Codeship.io service, helping make continuous deployment simpler.

We have got a lot of requests concerning continuous integration lately. That’s why we’ve published a new general article in our docs on how to integrate CI in your fortrabbit workflow. Pieter from wercker also just published this great article on how to integrate fortrabbit with wercker. Here is another one from us on how you could something similar combining Codeship with fortrabbit.

They walk you through the full process with a freshly created Fortrabbit application so you can see how to get it set from the start. The article shows you how to set up Codeship with the repository provider and the callback for push notifications. You'll have to set up a ssh key for Codeship to be able to access the repository and a special script that happens on push to trigger the build. There's also a bit at the end about "going multistage" with a different deployment process for each branch.
