This talk's examples are provided in shell commands and JavaScript but can be applied to other development patterns and languages. If unfamiliar, CI stands for continuous integration.

This talk is aimed at developers interested in CI benefits. It describes how CI works with examples for getting started with CI. It touches on different tooling and options available for CI. It connects implementation of CI and ways to save time for developers and money for companies.


This talk's goals are to describe CI, CI benefits, CI patterns, and provide developers with information to get started with CI.


Concluding this talk, listeners/developers will have tools to use to start their own CI processes. They will have a brief exploration into different CI patterns. They will be aware of benefits that developers receive after implementing CI.
