Practical Tips and Tricks for CI/CD Success

Zan’s back to teach us a thing or two about pipelines!!

A CI/CD pipeline seems straightforward to implement and maintain. Yet it can often quickly become a tedious time sink and a source of universal frustration on many teams.

From flaky builds, to long running builds, to flaky long running builds, the sources of frustration are endless. With the goal to ship more and faster as well as to compete in an ever changing industry, we can (and must) do better.

  • This talk will cover best practices for performance, stability, security, and maintainability of CI/CD pipelines, each supported with practical examples and counterexamples. *

Serverless CI/CD on the AWS Cloud

CI/CD pipelines have long played a major role in speeding up the development and deployment of cloud-native apps. Cloud services like AWS lend themselves to more agile deployment through the services they offer as well as approaches such as Infrastructure as Code. There is no shortage of tools to help you manage your CI/CD pipeline as well.

While the majority of development teams have streamlined their pipelines to take full advantage of cloud-native features, there is still so much that can be done to refine CI/CD even further. The entire pipeline can now be built as code and managed either via Git as a single source of truth or by using visual tools to help guide the process.

The entire process can be fully automated. Even better, it can be made serverless, which allows the CI/CD pipeline to operate with immense efficiency. Git branches can even be utilized as a base for multiple pipelines. Thanks to the three tools from Amazon; AWS CodeCommit, AWS CodeBuild, and AWS CodeDeploy, serverless CI/CD on the AWS cloud is now easy to set up.

Travis CI vs Jenkins: Which CI/CD Tool Is Right For You?

As a DevOps professional, you need to evaluate these tools based on your budget, project requirements, and other data points. This is why we take a deep dive into  Travis CI vs Jenkinscomparison to help you decide the right CI/CD tool for your project requirements.

If you are new to DevOps and are just learning the basics then I recommend you to read this detailed article on  Continuous Integration And Continuous Delivery. Without further ado, let’s get started.

What Is Jenkins?

Jenkins is a popular open-source CI/CD tool that is in usage for a long time. The tool is written entirely in Java. Jenkins has a powerful set of features that can be used to build, test, and integrate changes in a project.

jenkins

It is the go-to choice for startups as it is free to use, supports a wide range of plugins, and is backed by a vibrant community. Developers get the chance to set up a CI/CD environment in Jenkins. Jenkins is available for a wide range of platforms – Windows, macOS, and various flavors of Unix (i.e. Ubuntu, OpenSUSE, and more).

Another major of Jenkins is its extensibility with plugins. Like other open-source projects, Jenkins maintains two release lines – weekly and LTS (Long Term Support). At the time of this article, the latest version of Jenkins (LTS) was 2.235.1.

Salient features of Jenkins

  • Open source and free for use.
  • Extensive plugin ecosystem.
  • Vibrant community.
  • Supports parallel execution.
  • Ease to set up.
  • Offers REST API.
  • Can be configured using Jenkinsfile.

Working with GitHub Actions

GitHub has become one of the most widely used Source Code Repository. Its Distributed Version Control System helps the developers for faster development and Integration of their code. Recently, it launched GitHub Actions in beta which enabled developers to create automated workflows to build, test, and deploy their source code on GitHub.

In this article, we will discuss about GitHub Actions and how it can be used to build an automated software development life-cycle workflow.

Below are the things we will discuss in this article:

About GitHub Actions

Using GitHub Actions, we can create custom workflows that will help to build, test, package, release or deploy the code without leaving the GitHub UI. It enables us to build Continuous integration and Continuous Deployment capabilities directly in our repository. Here are some important features about GitHub Actions.

**YAML based process: **The workflow is written in YAML. Hence it is easy to create, read and use the actions that make up the workflow.

**One Place for everything: **By using GitHub Actions, we can build and test the developed code directly in our repository. There is no need to worry about integrating the source code repository with other build and deployment tools. Everything can be done in one single place.

**Easy to integrate code: **Since enabling CI/CD directly in the repository is possible using workflows, creating merge requests(MRs), building, testing and integrating them become way more seamless.
