Source: Building a serverless mobile development pipeline on GCP: new solution documentation from Google Cloud Platform
By John La Barge, Google Cloud Solution Architect
When it comes to mobile applications, automating app distribution helps ensure hardening and consistent delivery and speeds testing. But mobile application delivery pipelines can be challenging to build, because mobile development environments require you to install specific SDKs. Even distributing beta versions requires specific secrets and signing credentials.
Containers are a great way to distribute mobile applications, since you can incorporate the specific build requirements into the container image. Our new solution, Creating a Serverless Mobile Delivery Pipeline in Google Cloud Platform, demonstrates how you can use our Container Builder product to automate the build and distribution of the beta versions of your mobile application for just pennies a build.
