What Is Continuous Integration?

Continuous integration (CI) is a development practice where automated builds and tests are run when code is pushed into a shared repository, providing rapid feedback on code changes.

Continuous Integration: Examples in Context

Developers commit code changes to a version control system, triggering an automated CI/CD pipeline that compiles, tests, and deploys the application.

A continuous integration server runs unit tests and generates build artifacts whenever new code is pushed to a Git repository.
