Branches Choose Continuous Integration over Branching for Faster Feedback

Continuous integration is the best way to get feedback often on the state of your project. Running automated builds and tests after each integration improves reliability and predictability. Consequently, using task and feature branches, while useful in some cases, can be a distraction and delay getting information.

Cranes changing building architecture Engineering Architecture Systems for a Faster Build

In the era of continuous integration and continuous deployment, big applications are creating bloated build pipelines. The problem is when code becomes so entangled that every change impacts large portions of the system, meaning there’s a lot to rebuild. If you reshape the code architecture, you can reduce build times.

Acceleration Build the Right Things and Build Them Fast: Accelerate the Continuous Delivery Pipeline

When most people think about continuous delivery, they think of improving the build-test-deploy-operate cycle. They don’t think about how to improve the intake process.

Why Most Testers Hit a Developmental Wall

With automation, continuous integration, agile, and a slew of other testing innovations, the field has evolved into something new. However, one of the major issues that many testers are running into is that while the occupation itself is expanding, their own personal growth isn’t keeping pace.
