Working With Continuous Integration

Introduction Continuous Integration

The Working With Continuous Integration training course provides the learning and hands-on experience required to jump start a software development team’s adoption of continuous integration. Using a project-centric blended learning model, the students will examine common testing strategies, learn the fundamental concepts of continuous integration, set up a continuous integration environment, and incorporate continuous integration into their project’s SCM (Source Code Management) environment.

The Working With Continuous Integration can be delivered using Hudson, Jenkins, TeamCity, or Bamboo.

If you need help setting up a CI environment, consider extending this course with two days of expert-led consulting.
