All your code, All the time.
Integration, of the continuous kind!
Continuous Integration is the term proposed to define the practice of integrating code changes from multiple developers and/or contributors into a single project – a best practice in DevOps, allowing the frequent merging of code changes by developers into a central repository where builds and tests are run to ensure the code is sound and applicable. Details on CI are below, and you will see that it would be a mistake not to include it in your plans – here at Web Caboodle we are experts on the best practices in the industry, and we pride ourselves on putting 100% into every single project we work on, which means your project will be completed to the absolute highest standard every time.
Continuous Integration: The Deal.
The Development Practice of CI requires code to be integrated into a shared location, often several times a day. Each of the check-ins is then verified by a build and will allow teams to detect problems early on, and this avoids issues arising from teams working apart. This allows for less back-tracking to discover where things go wrong, and therefore more time to build and flesh out features. It also results in a cheaper build, as exponentially less time is used up on identifying errors and fixing them. To use CI brings a multitude of benefits –
Less time debugging and more time adding and building
Build a solid and shared foundation across your organization
No more waiting on implementation, automated builds ensure the functionality.
Reduce time taken to go live, allowing you to deliver in a more timely manner.
Increase visibility and enable greater communication amongst your teams.
