“It was easier, and faster to migrate all our builds to Buddy than it was to set up
a single new build on CircleCI. They have a phenomenal UI, where I can manually
trigger builds. Their Docker and caching integration is first class, and builds are
insanely fast. There's is no minute waiting time if I want to use Docker builds.”
