Book Description

For those of you getting started with CI, TeamCity, or both, this book will help you understand the principles and essential practices of CI and then provide steps to implement them in different kinds of projects. The book covers the essential features of TeamCity that are needed for a complete CI setup.

You will cover everything from introducing CI to its practises and benefits before getting started with TeamCity as a CI tool. First, we set up CI in a tech stack agnostic way, and then employ CI for different platforms and stacks. Throughout, there is a continuous progression from the simple to the most advanced features of TeamCity, with advise on how to avoid the pitfalls too.

You will also be given an introduction to what's beyond CI —Continuous Delivery and Continuous Deployment—and how TeamCity can help you there too.
