Continuous Integration Continuous Development (CICD) Automation Test
The major goal of CICD automation is to break down integration and deployment into smaller parts to reduce integration and deployment risks. It helps developers to catch bugs earlier and speed up release cycles. With automation, small updates are continuously delivered to users with minimal associated risks.
Commit and build
Developers commit their code to a shared repository to test the compatibility of new features and updates.
Small adjustments to the underlying code are committed, tested, and validated automatically.
Small updates are continuously released to minimize risks associated with deployment.
