“It is important to truly understand a process before it can be automated.”
This is how Float’s lead developer, Daniel Pfeiffer, described his experience using workflow automation for 2016’s 360iDev conference.
The focus of 360iDev is to bring together those who are navigating or are interested in iOS development for projects, partnerships, and networking opportunities.
Daniel’s speaking session, Automating Your Workflow, detailed how Float’s developers implemented Jenkins, an open-source continuous integration program.
Jenkins has allowed Float to do several things:
- get immediate reviews of new code,
- provide our QA team with up-to-date builds decreasing feedback loops,
- rapidly add new features, and
- respond to bugs much faster than before.
Daniel also provided tips on how attendees could start to automate effectively, such as scanning source files for information, tracking build warnings, and using a static analysis process.
It should come as no surprise that those of us here at Float are always striving to better our workflow and response times to better serve our clients. To do this, we need a superior level of comprehension and collaboration within our workforce. By using Jenkins for automation, we have employed yet another way to stay on top of our projects.
