What's an "active stack"?
An active stack (aka "deployment target") is a version of a stack that has been deployed into an environment within an AWS account. If you deploy a stack into dev, test, and production environments, that equals three active stacks. A stack is considered active if it's deployed, regardless of the number of invocations or subsequent deployments it experiences.
What exactly does support look like at the Dev & Pro levels? What are these "Wednesday demos" you speak of?
In addition to our regularly-updated docs site and the ability to chat with us on twitter, we hold a webinar every Wednesday at 10 AM PST. We treat them like product demos with occasional special guests and they are open to anyone who registers. We also encourage lots of Q&A with our Customer Success Team. Bring your questions and challenges and we’ll be happy to tackle them live! We also have a community Slack channel for the Dev users where you can seek support and a handy chat/email feature directly within Stackery at the Pro level. P.S. Our chat feature is monitored by real Stackery engineers, never bots.
How do projects I started before using Stackery change when I add them into Stackery?
If you have AWS SAM or serverless.yml projects, we make it easy to add and edit your existing projects. Stackery helps you create consistent and secure infrastructure-as-code templates throughout the lifecycle of the application. Everything you create or manage with Stackery is output in standard CloudFormation code synced with your Git provider and managed in your AWS account. If you want to return to slow, manual infrastructure templates, no problem! Just be sure to let us know how Stackery could work better for you in the future.
Stackery helps you work with and understand standard and open source infrastructure-as-code configurations regardless of your level of expertise. You'll always be able to access what you build and deploy with Stackery in your code repository or AWS account.
My team has an on-premises code repository. Can Stackery help us with a proof-of-concept?
Absolutely! Just get in touch with us and we'll get you set up.
Talk to me about how Stackery integrates with my team's workflow.
This is an important question to ask before adopting any new engineering tool and so much of what we build at Stackery revolves around it. We want your adoption of Stackery to disrupt your team's workflows as little as possible while saving everyone a ton of time. Across all of our plans, you're able to write application code directly to your serverless cloud environments and know that it's backed up by the Git-based version control of your choice. Furthermore, the code that is used to provision and configure CloudFormation resources is versioned and backed up to GitHub as well. Our Customer Success team will be happy to answer any other specific workflow-related questions you might have.
