DotCi vs wercker: What are the differences?
Developers describe DotCi as "Jenkins plugin with GitHub and Docker integration". DotCi is a Jenkins plugin created by Groupon that makes job management easy with built-in GitHub integration, push-button job creation, and YAML powered build configuration and customization. It comes prepackaged with Docker support as well, which means bootstrapping a new build environment from scratch can take as little as 15 minutes. DotCi has been a critical tool for Groupon internally for managing build and release pipelines for the wide variety of technologies in their SOA landscape. On the other hand, wercker is detailed as "Build, test, and deploy container-native applications". Wercker is a CI/CD developer automation platform designed for Microservices & Container Architecture.
