What is Spinnaker?
Spinnaker is a multi-cloud continuous delivery platform that provides an interface for defining immutable infrastructure, deployment automation, application updates and visibility into the end-to-end lifecycle of applications. Spinnaker helps developers to deploy to any cloud environment effortlessly by providing pull-based deployment model. Spinnaker automates application deployment via pipelines, which are assembled by the user from task pods. Tasks in a pod are executed sequentially to cause a change in the system, such as deploying an application version.
What is Ruby?
Ruby is not just a programming language, but an entire philosophy about programming. It makes programming fun, productive, and rewarding. Most programs consist of code that needs to be organized into functions. And so most Ruby programs consist of classes and modules containing useful functions for interacting with the real world, operating on text, working with objects, creating GUIs, doing system administration tasks, building web applications… you name it. Ruby is at its heart a toolkit for accessing existing libraries like OpenSSL and providing something like Visual Basic style syntactic sugar to make working with them fun.
