The previous article CI Tools Setup ended with Jenkins up and running waiting for us to use it. Travis, on the other hand, was left aside and soon we'll see why.
In this article we'll explore static analysis as the first type of tasks that we should do in our delivery pipeline. Since that is our starting point, let's go through the brief explanation. Continue reading →
We'll continue where we left in Introduction to concepts and tools. The goal of this article is to set up a Jenkins server locally through automated and repeatable process with all the artifacts stored in the GIT repository. This will require tools like VirtualBox and Vagrant. It will also require registration to Docker. Unlike the previous article that provided only general information, in this one we'll have to get our hands dirty and follow the examples.
What do we need in order to have a Jenkins server up and running locally? We need a virtual machine or available server, operating system installed and configured, Jenkins installed and configured. Since everything we do needs to be reliable and repeatable, we'll also need a Version Control System. Examples in this article will use GitHub as VCS. Continue reading →
This is the first article of the Continuous Integration, Delivery and Deployment series. We'll start out journey with brief explanation of Continuous Delivery. After short exploration of some of the tools used today, we'll move towards the flow (from setting up brand new environment and getting the code from the repository to the creation of fully tested and verified distribution). Each section will present different approaches, compare different tools and, finally, provide some hand-on examples. After the flow, we'll explore changes required in the development life cycle. Finally, we'll dive into last steps required for the transition from Continuous Integration towards Continuous Delivery and Deployment.
