Thanks JetBrains for releasing TeamCity and providing powerful CI in an effortless way.
Let’s see what CI is, then see what makes JetBrains TeamCity the best practice in order to achieve CI for software development.
Continuous Integration (CI) is a software development practice, where every developer or every member of the developing team is supposed or we would rather say obliged to integrate and test their work on daily basis and not waiting for a month to finally integrate and go through the manual testing process. Each integration is tested by an automated build and the errors are detected quickly. This practice leads to a less hefty integration and error fixing job and allows the development team to rapidly produce software that is agile.
The developer oriented features of TeamCity lets your system perform better, and it goes both ways. Either you prefer conventional Continuous Integration approach or Feature Branches with Git, TeamCity has covered a wide range of features raising your teams production to next level.
The installer package of Continuous Integration with TeamCity itself has enough features and plug-ins to start off from day one, supporting all the platforms they be .NET, Java or anything. It takes mere couple of minutes to get started.
As you progress and need additional features, you can simply opt from 100+ already built features and plug-ins, not only this with the help of TeamCity Open API you can build your customized plug-ins.
Anytime you need assistance or consulting, there are community based platforms including online documentation, public issue tracker and community forum, so you don’t have to feel alone.
As you grow and extend your capacity you need power to efficiently run it as before. TeamCIty gets big too and with the licensing model allows you to slickly expand your server potentiality.
Along with CI, now JetBrains TeamCity has encompassed all the features you need for an efficient continuous deployment, and hence successfully provides you with best practices in both areas.
Set Up the JetBrains TeamCity for CI with the help of online tutorials on Udemy that covers all the ins and outs of CI with TeamCity and offers an expert supervised interactive course in a very affordable way.
