Automating Test Environments With CircleCI

No two teams have the same path to production but having flexible tools allows high-performing teams to implement workflows that prevent roadblocks later. Modern DevOps practices like containerizing, segregating test environments, and automating tests and delivery can reduce risk and time to market.
