Continuous Integration and Delivery (CI/CD)


Continuous Integration (CI) is the process of automatically building and testing your code on every source control commit. Continuous Delivery or Continuous Deployment (CD) takes this further and automatically deploys the code to production on every commit. These techniques allow code to be built, tested, and deployed automatically through a robust CI/CD pipeline.

However, adopting these techniques comes with some challenges. Perhaps the most significant challenge is overcoming the fear that an uncaught error might make it all the way to production.

In this video, we take a deeper look at CI/CD pipelines and discuss strategies to overcome the fear that is often associated with Continuous Delivery.
