CI/CD pipeline is a development approach that streamlines the software delivery process through automation. The pipeline automates the building, testing, and deployment of software applications, thereby reducing the time and effort required to move an application from development to production.
The process begins with continuous integration (CI), which involves automatically compiling code changes into a shared repository. The code is then built and tested, and any issues are detected early in the development cycle. Continuous delivery (CD) then takes over, automatically deploying the code to a staging environment for final testing and quality assurance.
This approach brings several benefits to software development, including:
- Faster time-to-market: The automation of the build, test, and deployment processes allows for faster software delivery, making it easier to meet the demands of today’s fast-paced business environment.
- Improved quality: Early detection of issues allows developers to quickly identify and fix problems, resulting in higher-quality software.
- Increased collaboration: The shared repository and automated testing process encourage collaboration between team members, resulting in more efficient development cycles.
