    Concourse is the open-source CI/CD system that Pivotal Software uses to automate tasks from deploying and upgrading foundations to pretty much any task you can think of. In this presentation, I would like to share some of the things I have learned about concourse. We will start this journey by looking at a quick way to learn concourse for yourself with a simple hello world pipeline, and then move to a full multi-worker install with some more complicated pipelines.
