This book describes how to transform integration from a necessary evil into an everyday part of the development process. The key, as the authors show, is to integrate regularly and often using Continuous Integration (CI) practices and techniques The author first examines the concept of CI and its practices from the ground up and then move on to explore other effective processes performed by CI systems, such as Database Integration, Testing, Inspection, Deployment, and Feedback. With successful implementation of CI, developers can reduce their risks and repetitive manual processes, and teams receive better project visibility.
This book covers:
- How to reduce the amount of repetitive processes you perform when building your software
- Practices and techniques for using CI effectively with your teams
- Reducing the risks of late defect discovery, low-quality software, lack of visibility, and lack of deployable software
- Assessments of different CI servers and related tools on the market.
