Continuous integration helps teams work better together. By creating a system where members of a development team can integrate their code for building and testing on a continuous basis, conflicts are caught quickly or even prevented before they occur.

TeamCity provides teams with this capability and more. It’s a multiplatform, multi-language CI server that integrates into your developer’s workflow and provides them with real-time information about builds, tests, and deployments.

In the course, you learn:

How to create a TeamCity project with a repository URL
Commit breaking code to version control system
How to add a project to overview page
How to build number counter, number formats, and variables
How to deeply examine various test results
Different build configuration types: regular, deployment and composite
How to deploy Maven and NuGet packages and Docker images
How to configure and maintain TeamCity
