In this course, you'll learn how to automate and improve the mobile development process by using buddybuild's continuous integration and deployments tools. While learning these tools, you'll write unit and UI tests to ensure app functionality and interface workflows. You'll also simplify the steps necessary to deliver test and production versions of your apps into the hands of users.
Why Take This Course? When supporting apps on the App Store, many problems arise that are not prior to launch — you have to fix bugs affecting users, fulfill feature requests, and ensure your app functions smoothly on every potential device and configuration. This is very challenging, even for professional developers, and it is increasingly more difficult without the proper system in place to iterate, improve, and deliver new versions of your app. In this course, you'll learn how to solve problems like these using buddybuild's continuous integration and deployment systems.
###Ensuring App Quality with Continuous Integration
In this lesson, you’ll setup a continuous integration (CI) system with buddybuild so that you can test your apps like the pros. You'll learn how to configure a project with a simplified version of GitFlow, a commonly used Git branching structure well-suited for collaborative, professional projects. Also, you'll write unit and UI tests to verify the core functionality of an app.
###Creating a Build, Deploy, and Feedback Loop
In this lesson, you’ll continue to improve your development process by configuring a continuous deployment and delivery system using buddybuild. You'll learn how to quickly add and provision devices for testing so there is no delay in getting new builds in front of your users. Then, to complete the feedback loop, you'll utilize the buddybuildSDK to consolidate issues and requests into a single location with rich visual descriptions and debugging information.
