Continuous Integration (CI)

Continuous integration (CI) is a software development practice that involves integrating new code into the main branch of the codebase as often as possible. This helps to identify errors and potential problems early in the development process.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Continuous Integration (CI)

For SMBs, CI can be used to ensure that their software applications are always up to date and functioning correctly. By integrating new code into the main branch regularly, companies can avoid the possibility of any large-scale problems, such as bugs or security vulnerabilities, from being introduced into their products. Additionally, it allows them to test new features or updates before they're released to the public so there's less chance for them to fail.
