Airskiff: Your on-ramp to Airship development

Airship is a platform that enables operators to reliably and repeatably provision production-grade cloud infrastructure using declarative configuration. Airship is a substantial project, and it can be tough to know where to get started. Operator-scale target hardware, sizeable configuration documents, and non-trivial deployment times challenge developers who want to quickly get started with Airship development.

This presentation offers developers (as well as operatators) a solution to quickly test their software workloads using Airship, and to deploy their own code changes to Airship itself while demonstrating the flexibility and resiliency that Airship provides.

What can I expect to learn?

This session provides developers with:

  • A live demo of a software update using Airskiff.
  • An easy on-ramp to developing new features in Airship and testing them using Airskiff's lightweight development workflow.
  • The ability to deploy a custom workload on Airship from their personal laptops.
  • Insight into how the Airship community uses Airskiff to gate patches submitted to Airship repositories.
