When everything is firing on all cylinders, DevOps can be awesome. By automating every application build – from development and QA, to pre-release testing and eventually to production – DevOps lets you release new code as frequently as your business needs to instead of continuously delayed releases. This, in turn, enables you to resolve issues and make important improvements with lightning speed, keeping you agile and helping you meet customer needs (and expectations) as well as respond to new challenges in a competitive landscape.
No matter what industry you are in, it is always a challenge to make every of your customers happy and satisfied. By the time a customer specifically points out that your service or product is of extremely low quality, however, your reputation is gone.
Continuous *everything* has quickly become one of the most crucial backbones of mobile DevOps workflow. Many of today’s mobile developers use continuous integration to build, test and deploy their apps, games and even web apps. The process is typically scripted and configured so that all steps take place automatically and source code is stored on repository (Github, some local one etc).
In this article, we take a look how mobile continuous delivery and continuous integration works for iOS app development and testing. We’ll also take a look at Fastlane and how mobile devs can get the best out of it.
