Modern DevOps practices like containerizing, segregating test environments, and automating tests and delivery can reduce risk and time to market.

Explore how you can use CircleCI to automate your development process with continuous integration on DigitalOcean to reduce cost and increase velocity without compromising quality.

What You’ll Learn

  • Optimizing your pipelines for speed and performance by leveraging caching and flexible resources classes
