Developers have long been writing code and bringing individual code into a central repository on a continuous basis. But the problem with this traditional approach is that code commits are hardly ever consistent. With teams spread across different geographical locations, across different time zones, different amounts of code are sent into the repository at different times. The end result? Issues with integration and testing are far too many – which invariably lead to missed deadlines and overshooting budgets.
Since there is no way for developers to check for errors and no scope for iterative development, the overall delivery process is very slow.
Fast forward to today, and CI/CD tools like Jenkins make it easy for teams to continuously develop, test, and deploy code commits quickly and seamlessly.
Read on to learn more about the world of CI/CD and uncover the top reasons why we, as a team, unequivocally love Jenkins!
Gone are the days when developers had to individually write code and wait for the entire product to be developed before they can test and deploy. The world of CI/CD empowers teams to develop and test on a continuous basis while also working on new features or changes – without having to wait for each developer to commit their code to a central repository. With CI/CD, teams can go a step further; since code is automatically pulled whenever there is a commit made, they can ensure the source code is built continuously. CI/CD allows teams to
As one of the most popular CI/CD tools, Jenkins offers everything teams need to set the stage for continuous development and testing.
Here are 7 reasons that make Jenkins a winner:
As software development teams look to enable CI/CD, Jenkins offers all that’s needed for continuous everything: from easy installation to easy configuration, rich plugins to high extensibility, widespread deployment to seamless integration with unlimited tools in the CI/CD toolchain. At Addteq, we love Jenkins for all this and more. What are your top reasons?
