Conducto is one of the newest tools that’s being used by engineers to automate workflows and simplify complex CI/CD (continuous integration/continuous delivery) and data pipelines. Conducto’s pipeline toolkit allows engineers to define their pipeline in Python instead of a configuration language, is easy to visualize as a pipeline scale with more tasks with the use of a tree structure, and is also easy to debug. For companies, adopting CI/CD enables them to reduce costs, innovate faster, experiment more, and improve the quality, security, and deployment of their software. The company’s technology is battle-tested as it was used by hundreds of traders at the cofounders’ previous company. AlleyWatch caught up with CEO and Cofounder Jonathan Marcus to learn about the technology, the company’s launch, and recent funding round.
