This course takes you through the fundamentals of Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Deployment (CD) to help you understand how CI/CD fits within DevOps, and how CI/CD is works to solve real world problems.
This brief program discusses how continuous delivery is a software engineering approach in which teams produce software in short cycles, ensuring that the software can be reliably released at any time and, when releasing the software, doing so manually. Continuous delivery (under which Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment can be grouped) aims at building, testing, and releasing software with greater speed and frequency. In large measure, Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment fall within the broader category of DevOps, which is discussed also in this brief program.
Continuous delivery approach helps reduce the cost, time, and risk of delivering changes by allowing for more incremental updates to applications in production. A straightforward and repeatable deployment process is important for continuous delivery.
