The Runnable Blog
Building our blog was a new challenge for me. Working with our engineers to write posts helped me realize how important writing is in the products we design. When looking at the tone of what we’ve written to users, I’ve learned to ask myself how our users are feeling; “Are you eager to get started now, or are you feeling frustrated?”.
Users could manage their Dockerfile in their repository and we would relaunch environments when they made changes on GitHub.
Workflow Oriented Design
Most continuous development tools presented code by build number, but that made it hard to identify what you’re running or testing. We choose to build code by branches, mirroring our user’s existing workflow.
We extended our user philosophy to our onboarding strategy by using real GitHub projects to demo the value we add to developers.
