Build Process is the process of building and deploying the code and the database for a custom application.

Automated Build Process

Build Process Steps

Step 1: Write and Commit bits of Code

We are prepared for every worst situation. Let’s say one of our programmers is busy designing your individualized application on his/her own computer. What happens if the system crashes? Lost of work may be forever, don't worry, we upload the code to a central source code repository. It is a holding area or a database for our code.

Step 2: Scan the Code for Problems

With the code in the repository, we then scan it for common problems. There are a variety of tools available for this, based on the programming language used, in our projects JSHint, FxCop and Code Duplication Checkers are some of the most commonly used. We like scanners because they can automatically monitor the code before we deploy it.

Step 3: Compile the Code

In this step, we compile the code after we have scanned it. We change the programmer's commands compatible to your desktop, mobile device or web browser.

Step 4: Run Automated Tests

Finally, we’re ready for the automated tests. For instance, if we’re working with a website application, scripts load the browser automatically, land on a specific page, and test how things work on that page. Typically, there are hundreds of automated tests for a given application. The quality of the application is vastly improved because the automated tests run daily.

Step 5: Report Any Problems

When a problem is detected our team immediately start repairing it, the result is bug-free code throughout the development process. Selenium is our preferred software testing framework for user interface automated test.

Quick Problem Solving

Our frequent integration results in substantially reduced time needed to go back and discover where the problems are, allowing us to dedicate our resources to developing features.

Continuous Integration is inexpensive when compared to the time and effort spent integrating when problems have accumulated. If integration is done rarely, it just makes more difficult to detect and repair issues ruining project deadlines or, potentially, causing total project failure.

Why This Matters to You

We know time and money are significantly important for you. Our well-developed build process saves both your time and money. It also minimizes critical problems to prepare the application for deployment to your server. Build process makes the process details run smoother. We know that sticking to build process is the smartest software development technique.
