Custom scripts in your language
Write custom scripts in PowerShell, Bash, F# or C# today, and in Python or Ruby soon. Octopus takes care of transporting the script to the remote machines you are deploying to, and running them locally, so they have full access to everything they need to do to deploy applications.
Octopus uses Variables to manage the settings that change between environments - like passwords and connection strings. These are made available to your scripts so you can use them for environment-specific deployment logic.
Octopus can run your script in parallel across hundreds or thousands of nodes if needed, and brings all the output back to a single deployment log that's easily accessible.

Currently updating a deployment process in @OctopusDeploy. I forgot how easy this was to use, everything just makes sense.— David Swindells (@d_swindells) January 30, 2019
Tools like @OctopusDeploy can be great in enabling culture change, we've been able to scale and improve our configuration story since we started using it.— Neil Chalk (@_neilch) July 19, 2018
