Vienna-based Railsonfire that helped developers using Ruby on Rails has done a number of important things these days: They’re now called Codeship and have moved to Berlin from Vienna while joining the startup accelerator Seedcamp and offering developers additional support for Java, node.js, PHP and Python.
Seedcamp invested in Codeship after they participate in two local Seedcamps, the 2011. in Ljubljana and last year’s in Budapest. Cofounder Moritz Plassnig told Netocratic that they struck a deal with Seedcamp for less money for less equity. He also shared that their minimum viable product was for Rails developers. Since they managed to get paying customers and validated their MVP, the company decided to scale to support more technologies. On the official Codeship blog Plassnig shares:
Our vision is it to make developers’ lives easier and help them focus on their core business, while helping them to ship. Teams nowadays have various multi-technology stacks and we thrive to support as many combinations and needs as possible.
Codeship now offers hosted continuous integration and deployment for web applications with plans starting from $9 a month with 1 project and 50 builds. They have managed to integrate their offering with GitHub, Heroku and cloudControl. Plassnig confirmed to Netocratic that they are already talking to business angels as well as VC funds about a followup investment. Congrats!
