Past, Present and Future: The Evolution of CI/CD

It’s been more than a decade since the first continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) platform was rolled out. Today, those platforms are the foundation for the DevOps workflows that transformed the way applications are built and deployed.

However, it has also become apparent that legacy CI/CD platforms still require a lot of manual effort to maintain, especially when compared to more modern instances of these platforms that sharply reduce the level of toil DevOps teams experience. While in the past, that toil was a necessary price to pay for automating and streamlining software development and delivery, today’s developers don’t have the time to spare on management and maintenance. Thankfully, the next generation of CI/CD platforms have evolved to remove much of this toil, simplifying the management of DevOps workflows and, just as importantly, improving the developer experience.

In this Techstrong Learning Experience, you’ll learn how CI/CD platforms have evolved and what new innovations they introduce into the software development life cycle. You’ll also learn how these next-generation tools can help ease management and monitoring pressure, remove toil, accelerate development and delivery and improve developer experience.

You’ll learn:

  • How today’s CI/CD platforms differ from legacy tools
  • How modern CI/CD tools can remove toil
  • CI/CD’s role in accelerating the SDLC
  • How these tools can improve developer experience
