In this video, Meaghan Lewis talks about the value of running automation tests with a continuous integration server. Meaghan also demonstrates setting up a project with Travis CI to run tests.
- [Instructor] The magic of automated tests…is that they can run over and over again…and provide the same result.…Continuous integration is the best way…to allow automated tests to be run repeatedly…across different platforms and environments.…And with continuous integration,…tests can be triggered as a result of any new changes…pushed to GitHub…or tests can also be run on a reoccurring basis…such as every hour or every night at nine p.m.…A benefit of running tests continuously…is that it will likely catch bugs sooner…than compared to engineers running tests locally…on an ad hoc basis.…
There are many CI solutions available.…I won't get into the different options here,…but I will recommend selecting a solution based on cost,…ease of use, maintenance, and support.…For the rest of this video,…I'll demonstrate setting up my test application Stickerfy…to work with a continuous integration tool called Travis CI.…Travis CI is a great option because it is free to use…for public and open-source GitHub repositories.…It is super easy to set up,…
