What is DevOps and CI/CD?
DevOps (short for Development and Operations) is a work philosophy related to software development, focusing on the integration of development (Development) and operational (Operations) team activities. Within the DevOps approach, a key role is played by the practice of CI/CD, which encompasses Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD), often referred to as the CI/CD pipeline.
The implementation of CI/CD introduces automation in the processes of creating, testing, and deploying applications. In short, DevOps, in collaboration with CI/CD, leads to the streamlining of the software lifecycle, allowing for improved code quality, faster delivery of new features and innovations, and increased efficiency of development and operational teams.
