Spinnaker ( is an open source, multi-cloud continuous delivery platform built by Netflix in partnership with Google, Microsoft, and others. At Netflix, Spinnaker powers over 4,000 deployments a day. With Spinnaker, you can easily automate complex delivery processes into repeatable pipelines that enable rapid deployments with confidence.

This workshop will provide hands on experience building continuous delivery pipelines for deploying and promoting code across cloud virtual machines and containers. We’ll start with a git repository and work together in building repeatable pipelines that take code through packaging, deploying, promoting and rollbacks.

Attendees will learn:

  • Netflix’s application-centric model for managing cloud resources
  • Multi-cloud deployment to Cloud VMs and Kubernetes
  • How Spinnaker interacts with third party tools like Jenkins and the Docker Registry
  • Pipeline triggers, stages, and notifications
  • Best practices to safely deploy new code by leveraging Spinnaker features like traffic guards, deployment windows, rollbacks and automated canary analysis

Key takeaways

  • Discuss how Spinnaker interacts with third party tools
  • Learn about Netflix’s application-centric model and multi-cloud deployment
  • Gain knowledge on the best practices to safely deploy new code
