Accelerating CI has dramatic effects: tightening the feedback loop for developers, delivering changes to production faster, and reducing CI resources costs.
In this talk, we'll see different patterns to optimize CI:
- Collecting key metrics to detect regressions, pinpoint bottlenecks, and confirm improvements
- Setting up an efficient pipeline structure
- Establishing environmental build agent patterns
- Leveraging caches to avoid unnecessary build work
Most of the talk will be based on our experience while developing Gradle Enterprise in a highly productive team of fifteen people.
