About Release[Board]


What inspired you to build Release[Board]?

Release[Board] grew out of our own frustrations as software developers. After seeing the inefficiencies of our own software teams around deploying software to production and not find any solutions, we decided to create Release[Board] to ensure no other software team would have to deal with the miscommunication that plagued our teams.
