Buddy – Decentralized Development Automation Platform

Buddy is a winning development automation platform that serves a rapidly growing market. Their vision is to become the backbone on which talented people can build world-altering apps & services. Their goal is to take the load off millions of developers by offloading everything that can be automated – giving them back the time for being creative.

Advantages

As an established SaaS business in a rapidly growing market, Buddy is uniquely positioned with:
• A blistering product that successfully solves real-life problems of a $110B market, including such respected brands as Inc. Magazine, Docplanner and CGI.
• Partnerships with Google, GitHub, Docker, Microsoft and Amazon by participating in the Google Cloud Launcher, GitHub Marketplace, Docker Store, Azure and (soon) Amazon Web Services Marketplace respectively.
• The self-hosted Enterprise version of the platform ready to be used as the foundation for the decentralized application development automation.
• Closely-bonded team of 16 working together for years – most of them partners and shareholders – proven to deliver high quality solutions for challenging problems.

Securify Example

Recent research shows that almost half of total existing Ethereum smart contracts have been flagged as vulnerable (8,833 of the 19,336)1. Also, as shown by the Parity Wallet library incident2, even the most experienced developers are prone to mistakes. Automating testing and making it easy to plug-into any dApps development workflow, would drastically increase the quality and safety of smart contracts. Securify is a free service provided by Software Reliability Lab. It allows automated analysis of any Ethereum contract for critical security vulnerabilities and insecure coding through a website. Here’s an example:

Automating Security Reports with Buddy

Once Securify is published as a dedicated action to the DevOps Marketplace, anyone will be able to add it to their automation pipelines and report issues as soon as they are introduced into the codebase. This will drastically increase code quality and reduce shipment time by eliminating unnecessary code rewrites that, when done late, take much more time and require additional testing. The team behind Securify have also created a more sophisticated service: ChainSecurity. If published to the DevOps Marketplace as an action, it can be used to run paid ChainSecurity audits. A Buddy user could, for example, put it in a pipeline executed on every push to the staging branch, meaning that the smart contract is ready for final testing. Since the handling of audits is automated, these results, once ready, would be sent back to the action via a proper end-point marking the branch passing or failing.

Buddy for Blockchain Apps

The Problem

Starting with smart contract development isn’t simple, even for experienced off-chain developers. There are a couple of major concepts that programmers have to understand before any work can start: the Blockchain itself, EVM, solidity, Geth, and dApps, to name just a few. There are also many myths around Blockchain development, which can create challenges to the adoption of Blockchain technology & the development of smart contracts or dApps. Once just dApps and smart contracts get more complex, bugs and flaws are introduced to the system—waiting to be exploited by bad actors, which may lead to the loss of millions of dollars worth of cryptocurrencies. Moreover, there aren’t any tools mature enough to assist with Blockchain-specific development tasks or build trust between project sponsors/founders & their developers. However, this is slowly changing thanks to projects such as Truffle, Lisk—and now Buddy.

Buddy Solutions

The Idea

In the same way that Buddy has been successful at introducing development automation to web developers, Buddy is also pioneering development automation of Blockchain-based projects. Blockchain developers can use the service to design automation pipelines with ready-to-go actions: from compiling and tests, to deployments, custom scripts, and dApps monitoring. This process is very easy and resembles building a house of bricks: you pick an element that you need and put it in the desired place, adjusting the configuration as necessary.
