Continuous integration is the method of computerizing the integration of code changes from various contributors into a specific software project. The continuous integration method involves automatic tools that emphasize the new code’s correctness prior to integration. A source code version control system is the core of the continuous integration process. The version control system is also accompanied with additional checks such as syntax style review tools, automated code quality tests, and much more.
