BUDDY - Modelling A Blockchain Solution For DevOps Automation And Development

in contest •  2 months ago

INTRODUCTION

Joe is a programmer and has spent months building an app to sell his product. But after months of sleepless nights and constant, he could only manage to develop an average looking app which ultimately affected his product marketability and profit. So he decided he needed to come up with a better idea to drive market traffic for his product. After making some changes to product designs and packaging, the product market peaked a little but he wanted more.

Fred, an experienced service industry veteran suggested the need to upgrade the product app features, joe get down to work and made some commits that he was ready to merge into his already existing app, he got stucked!

Joe was frustrated,so one day he decided to discard most of his team members to make room for new ones; the new teams couldnt produce any positive result towards the project.

Now imagine there was a platform where joe could easily host all his application, make new commits and easily integrate it into his app without much ado.

What this would mean to his business goals, how it will translate to product acceptability, how much he would have saved hiring and firing his employees or the sheer time he would have to develop new ideas and create better products!

In simple terms, BUDDY is a platform that helps developers, programmers and business entreprenuers manage and host their applications in an easy, flexible and adaptable environment built with helpful tools to deploy and maintain applications in a secure manner.

So this means Joe could have benefitted immensely from a platform like Buddy.

THE CHALLENGE FOR DEVELOPERS IS WHAT BUDDY SEEKS TO TACKLE

Every programmer has an idea but before any programmer sits down to write a single line of code, he/she needs to have a clear plan of how to bring each idea into conception. This sounds easier said than done, Joe, just like every other programmer would certainly agree with me on this fact.

After making out his plans,Then comes the hard part of translating every thoughts and ideas into lines of code which the computer understands and this is the part of planning and development. He tries to understand every part of the larger body of his code but unfortunately he doesnt get to test the performance of this jargons as pertaining to the cool, nice application he wants to develop.

Almost every programmer exudes this belief that his well-thought lines of jargons should definitely work, but the reality is that the end product might not necessarily turns out to exhibit what the programmer expect and that is why it is very important to subject every lines of code to proper testing, also known as Deployment,this must preceed the final launching of the said software or application into production environment.

During each stages from project idea to its conception, programmer usually encounters many issues including Unavailability of sufficient testing tool, Scalability issues, New technologies keeps coming out rendering the test facilities obsolete and changing teams amongst many others.

All this issues can lead to delay in project execution, low throughput because most of the programmers effort is being geared towards solving this issue. So time that supposed to be spent on making quality moves on the project such as choosing a design that suites his application, making plans for future update will be spent fixing bugs, testing code functionality which slows down the pace of a project.

Buddy already has an integrated platform which has helped numerous projects to tackle this types of problems and many more.

Some of those companies which have benefitting from buddy's one-click automation environment for DevOps are

Docplanner : Docplanner is a platform where doctors book appointment with their clients and buddy has contributed positively to this project as it has helped them solve problems like fixing bugs in the front-end( Production), Flexibility in scaling and updating their application (Deployment) while serving as a support to team members working in different time zones via their full CI suite Notification environment.

HOW BUDDY IS SOLVING PROBLEMS OF SOFTWARE PRODUCTION AND ADDING VALUE TO DevOps

DevOps is two words intertwined in one which stands for "Development and "Operation".

Buddy helps programmers to tackle the numerous problems associated with software production on all four fronts of DevOps via this means


A Fully Integrated Automated Testing Environment

This is one feature that makes Buddy unique as it helps developers to run a full test suite on their codes with one click by selecting task and commands to execute on the buddy interface. Programmers can run their code through different DevOps environment such as production, deployment and development multiple times . This practice helps to ensure the integrity of the software or application being developed.


As A Scalability Platform For Your Software Needs

Buddy makes it easy to integrate new changes to an existing software. By simply creating pipelines for different aspect of your project, you can take control of each functionalities while also implementing a version control mechanism on their platform incase you want to test or restore different versions of a particular project.


As a Resource Sharing Platform


Buddy serves as an open-source community which aims to build a hub for knowledge sharing to help developers tackle issues in a faster and more efficient way, so they encourage programmers to make contributions that can be useful to solving any form of issue
