Learn Continuous Deployment with Armory and Wilco

Jan 6, 2023 by Anna Daugherty

Armory is excited to announce we have launched an interactive, narrative-driven developer experience that teaches continuous deployment concepts. And now you can try it out for yourself!

Wilco, also known as the “flight simulator” for software developers, allows companies to create engaging interactive developer challenges (called quests) that enable developers to acquire and practice skills on-demand in a production-like environment.

Armory Quests on Wilco

Armory’s first quest is now available on Wilco. In it, devs can learn foundational continuous deployment best practices, starting with how to automatically Deploy an existing application using Armory Continuous Deployment-as-a-Service.

Coming soon in Armory’s second quest, developers will learn more CD concepts and advanced deployment strategies, including how to add a canary deployment on the Anythink repo.

Want to see how easy it is to add advanced deployments to an application with Armory? Try it now in the Enable Continuous Deployment Quest: https://www.trywilco.com/quests/enable-continuous-deployment
