From code commit to production in minutes
We help you to reliably setup continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) system, so you can focus on building new features and delivering them faster and with more quality to your customers.
You might ask yourself, do you need CI/CD. Here are some key considerations:
What is CI/CD, and what are the benefits of using it?
Continuous integration means that any code change you make and commit to the repository automatically gets tested to ensure quality, built into artifact and if all well ready to be deployed. By continuously integrating all parts of the process, you are guaranteeing that code changes are smaller, resulting in fewer issues. By testing code with each change, you capture bugs early in the process.
Continuous delivery automates the process of getting new code changes into production or staging environments. Automating this process saves you time, increases security, and decreases the chance of downtime caused by human mistakes. It also simplifies reverting changes, since you have all releases versioned.
As a term, CI/CD is very often used in combination, since these two processes are very intertwined.
To sum up, the benefits are:
- Saves costly developer's time
- Increases code quality
- Decreases security risk
- Eliminates human error
- Shortens new features release cycles = move faster
- Gives you more focus on what matters
- Pays for itself
Who is this for?
Startups - if you regularly add new features to your website or app and your business depends on it. Not breaking things should be your goal from the early days. Even Facebook realized that moving faster on solid infrastructure is better than breaking things.
Consultants and agencies - when making things for clients, reliability, and quality are attributes you want them to say about you. More reliability = more clients. Plus, the automation saves you time and increases the margins.
Enterprises with software products - big enterprises come with significant challenges. Simplifying some of them is the key to moving faster when big.
What happens when you create a new feature for your app/website?
If a new code gets merged in without any quality checks, it will sooner or later show signs of the trouble.
Increase quality by running all your unit/functional tests with every code change. Automatically reject pull requests until bugs fixed.
Is your new feature done, tested, and ready to go?
Nobody wants to wait for the next release cycle. Ship small changes often, and make your developers happy.
(S)FTP-ing these new changes manually to prod?
How about we remove the chance for human error and costly downtime. Only one mistake can cost you thousands.
Did someone mention security?
Let's not even go there. Not many people need access to your production cluster: more exposure, more risk. Decrease the exposure by automating the process.
Can't I implement this myself?
You can. Maybe you should. That is if you have expertise in setting up build systems, and you want to take time off developing new features. Be aware that there are many gotchas, and CI/CD can be a huge time sink. If you want years of best practices and let your busy devs focus on shipping new features instead of losing time on infrastructure, you should talk to us. Even solo consultants benefit from extra focus since time is the only commodity we can't get back.
What kind of experience do you have?
We worked with startups, agencies, and enterprises. Some of our clients include IBM and Liberty Mutual.
