CI ensures that code changes are integrated into the codebase frequently and reliably, while CD automates the deployment of code to production.
CI/CD can help to increase developer productivity by automating many of the manual tasks involved in software development.
CI/CD can help to shorten release cycles by automating the deployment process.
CI/CD can help to improve visibility and transparency in the software development process.
It promotes better collaboration among developers. By continuously integrating their code changes into a shared repository.
But sometimes CI/CD can be a complex and challenging process to implement, especially for large or complex codebases.
Another challenge of CI/CD is that it requires a cultural shift in the way that software is developed.
CI/CD can involve some upfront costs, such as the cost of setting up and maintaining the CI/CD infrastructure.
