Tasqr automates away a large part of the devops engineer's responsibility by empowering developers to take control of their application's deployment and monitoring automation.

The irony of devops as it is widely practiced today is that, on net, it tends to result in more organizational silos, in direct contradiction of the stated goal of devops. Every software team spends time and resources building an automation infrastructure tailored to their software engineering processes. Often times, these solutions either use technologies that are different from the team's core language competencies, or is held together by "duct tape" and requires even more resource commitments to maintain as the application evolves or encounters issues. This tends to create a division between developers and the maintainers of the infrastructure (commonly called the "devops" team).

This tends to create a division between developers and the maintainers of the infrastructure (commonly called the "devops" team).

Tasqr provides developers with the tools to easily and rapidly build their own automation for their application using a skillset they already have- knowledge of the command line. By merely configuring an application manually in its development environment, Tasqr provides the ability to record these actions and execute them at scale in new or existing servers in any cloud. Using the same technique, Tasqr can schedule regular healthchecks of an application and notify the team when something goes unexpectedly wrong.

When automation is simple, and everyone on the team understands the technology, then the promise of devops can be truly fulfilled. Teams become more efficient and obstacles to organizational success become much smaller.

I love the ease of use and the immediate value I get from using Tasqr. We use Tasqr on a daily basis to manage our server amongst a large team of engineers. Recording pre-defined deployment steps has allowed us to ship quickly. Eddy and team provide an unmatched level of support. I recommend Tasqr to anyone.
