Source Control and CI/CD Resources The Orlando release brought some major enhancements to ServiceNow’s source control integration and added some CI/CD capabilities in the form of automated testing and deployment APIs and IntegrationHub spokes. We’ve covered most of that on the blog, but recently there has been a lot more content published due to K20 and other factors. This article will detail that content. Developer Site Training Training on the ServiceNow Developer Site has used source control with GitHub for years to provide modular learning content.
Congratulations to Team Volteoans! Yesterday we showed the finals of the CreatorCon Hackathon and announced that Team Volteoans won with their app Clinical Care Management (EMR). The hackathon team would like to thank everyone for participating in the weekend-long hackathon. We had over 220 people across 50 teams submit applications by the end of the weekend and had some really impressive and innovative apps submitted. Choosing the five category winners and the grand prize winner was very difficult for our judging teams.
We are excited to announce prizes for the CreatorCon 2020 Virtual Hackathon! The Grand Prize winning team will receive $5,000 in Visa gift cards distributed evenly across team members and the four second-place teams will each receive $500 Visa gift cards for a total of $7,000 in prizes. Keep reading for more details on how this will work, and the official rules and information can be found on the Hackathon page.
