DevOps has been a hot topic in web development for quite some time now, and for good reason. It’s based on the idea that development and operations teams should work closely together to produce better, more efficient, and more reliable results. Teams that communicate and collaborate well make for a healthier, more productive company.
Continuous integration (CI) is an integral part of DevOps. CI’s goal is to prevent integration issues by regularly merging code to a central repository as soon as possible. These constant updates make it easier to find and squash bugs when they occur and help ensure that the product always works as it should.
Probo.CI is an open-source continuous integration and quality assurance tool built by Zivtech. While we’re mainly a Drupal shop, Probo isn’t exclusively for Drupal. It can be used with any web technology.
Probo integrates with Github, Bitbucket, and Stash. For every pull request, it triggers a build that provides a link to a working version for that specific commit. You can then share this link with any member of your team, or with your client. Everyone who has a stake in the project can verify that each change meets its goal.
With Probo, individuals outside of your development team can see and test new features. You’ll reduce development bottlenecks, improve communication across teams, and produce better, more reliable results.
