Overall Satisfaction with CircleCI

CircleCI is being used by my team as a continuous integration / continuous deployment pipeline for code and various other programmatic work. The business problems it addresses is the deployment, testing, and productionization of code supporting our main software engineering functions. Various other teams we work with also go along this pathway and use circle or other tools.
  • continuous integration
  • test driven development
  • continuous deployment
  • scope of view
  • better pricing model
  • better personalized support
  • reduced deployment timeframe
  • better testing framework
  • fewer bugs introduced into production
CircleCI interface is awesome in that it is relatively modern and makes it clear exactly which parts of the engineering lifecycle you are in.
CircleCI support is pretty good but the company is small and a startup. It's not got the type of enterprise support you would see from larger institutional companies.
CircleCI is the company that is innovating compared to the other ones. I think it's a great piece of software compared to other open source options that don't have as much functionality and improved capability over time.
CircleCI is great when you have software engineering processes that you need to take out and drastically scale and test before deployment. It works with regular code structures where there's a procedural lifecycle and where there is a need to methodically test and deploy code in an automated manner so deployments no longer need to be done by hand.
