Why Continuous Integration is so Important
Keeping a software project running on-time and on-budget is a complicated dance between version control systems, automated testing frameworks, and deployment mechanisms. Continuous integration helps to ensure that developers are constantly merging codebases on a daily basis to help prevent surprises further down the road.
By catching problems early on, the unpleasant phenomenon of “integration hell” can be avoided, thereby saving the development team lots of headaches and time – and the company lots of money.

If you’re a newcomer to the field, then this is the ideal course for you. You’ll get an inside look at the process and philosophy of continuous integration from an experienced engineer who has fought in the trenches. For students who are looking to break into the industry and hit the ground running on day 1, this course will help you understand the lingo and methodology of many large software shops.
What You’ll Learn
This course covers the following topics in this sequence:
- What Is CI?
- Creating a Development Environment
