Continuous integration is part of the so called “CI/CD pipeline” the process that introduces ongoing automation throughout the software application lifecycle, and the backbone of DevOps practices. Used at Codespring before the clarification of DevOps principles, CI – Continuous Integration means that new code changes of a software application are regularly built, regularly tested, and then merged to existing features. Continuous Integration solves the complex problem of multiple branches of an app being developed in different team, in the same time.
Continuous integration (CI) enables multiple developers to contribute and collaborate at an ever increasing pace. It is mostly suitable for software development teams required to achieve high velocity.
