C.I.; Continuous Integration; Cephas
Okay, this is somewhat work and play, we mainly use it for work, but it enables us to play. Cephas is our CI-server. CI stands for "Continuous Integration". First introduced to the public on the ARRRRug meeting back in 2011, we got some good reactions on it.
What it does, is so overwhelming (for us), that we can only list it up:
- check repositories for errors
- build repositories
- merge branches
- repeat above
- deploy to staging/production env
This all with us getting a cup of coffee. We have a lot of internal tools we use on daily basis to work harder, better, faster, but this is our crown-gem.
