Continuous Integration (CI) is one of the most important tenets of agile practices. And Continuous Delivery (CD) is impossible without continuous integration. All practices are good and enhance productivity when other good practices and tools back them. For example CI & CD without proper automation test cases can be a killer. It kills the team productivity and puts deliver on risk. Via this session I will try to share my experiences of how CI and CD can be done in optimized fashion (specifically for feature branch based development approach)
We will discuss the best practices and ways of ensuring proper CI and CD in feature branch based development approach.
I will showcase an automated Jenkins based setup, which is geared to ensure that all feature branches and master remain in cohesive harmony.
At the end we will conclude on what are the essential components for ensuring successful CI and CD. We will also discuss what are the associated must haves to make it a success.
