We're using Jenkins to perform part of our deployment pipeline. To our development team, all the code tests are performed through Jenkins and on the DevOps side, all configuration management is performed by Jenkins integrated to Git, Puppet and Terraform. Also, their role on our day by day activi...

CircleCI is well suited for a small team that needs to run tests on web app codes like Ruby on Rails, React, Python, etc. It's not as well suited for larger teams as the cost quickly scales up. It's also not well suited for more complicated builds because the configuration process is pretty arcane.

Gradle seems to be the new kid on the block, and provides better support for parallel tasks. Getting started can be very easy, but projects quickly need more control, or customization which Gradle has a hard time providing. The rapid changes to the tool also make it difficult for organizations th...

Maven is suitable with almost Java projects to obtain flexibility on building the application quickly. That makes it easier for the developer to manage project lifecycle and decouple between source code and its dependency. However, Maven requires a repository server to store an internal repositor...

Jenkins is open source, thus has a large number of plugins rolled out already. All major VCS, SCM, Git, and Maven applications support Jenkins. They even support Docker which is trending in DevOps nowadays. It has more than 50 APIs and plugins to work on. Thus, it is always appropriate to have Je...

We use TeamCity as a CI/CD tool for our pre-production and production builds. We've set it up for near full automation use and have set it up with multiple steps for each build. TeamCity is used on a team-by-team basis here at my work. Several surrounding teams in many different departments use i...

Suited for integration with Github, pulling on your master branch, wrapping it up into a deployment package, pushing that package out to an endpoint, and using scripting to update files. This process is primarily what we use Jenkins for, and it does this work well.

Our SaaS platform has gone to a CI/CD model, and CircleCI is a critical piece in automating the building, testing, and deployment of all non-production environments. Whenever a developer needs to test something, they can trigger a build and either recycle an older dev environment or launch a new ...

We use CircleCI to allow for continuous integration across all of our software applications and environments. CircleCI allows us to build complex workflows, including steps to run pre-deploy / post-deploy scripts, execute test suites, and send slack notifications. With Circle, we can ensure code ...

We use JRebel in the software development group to minimize the time spent between the redeployments of the Java applications during development. Without JRebel, every change you do in the source code that requires re-compilation will need a redeployment of the entire app, which can take from 30 ...

Codeship is very well suited to teams that have specialized devops members along with other specialized developers. It lets the other developers focus on what they do best, without having to learn another technology stack. This has cut down on a lot of headaches at our company with developers nee...

Jenkins is well suited to be used in any build use case. I consider Jenkins to be the gold standard for build tools and should be the primary choice for any build unless there are mitigating circumstances that require another tool.

Bamboo is suited for Continuous Deployment and Continuous Integration. Adding scripts to run your automated tests (regression, integration, API, etc.) helps you deliver higher quality releases. All these are great, but make no mistake, you still need to write all scripts and tests. Bamboo will ma...

We used it for managing deployments of our applications across various environments, as well as a way to manually run various operations, such as running Tests or Invoking scripts. Jenkins has some good user permissions, that allow us to delegate specific responsibilities to various individuals w...
