Unit tests are used to verify that individual units of source code work according to a defined spec. While this may sound complicated to understand, in short it means that we try to verify that each part of our source code works as expected, without having to run the full program they belong to. All OpenStack projects come with their… Read more →

The upcoming version of Zuul has many new features that allow one to create powerful continuous integration and continuous deployment pipelines. This article presents some mechanisms to create such pipelines. As a practical example, I demonstrate the Software Factory project development workflow we use to continously build, test and deliver rpm packages through code review. Build job The first stage of this… Read more →
