Automating Test Environments With CircleCI


About the Talk

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.

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
  • Eliminating bottlenecks from long-running tests by taking advantage of parallelism and test splitting
  • Mitigating the risk of unplanned downtime by implementing multi-cloud pipelines

This Talk is Designed For

DevOps and engineering leaders, developers, and cloud architects.
