Review what we have covered in this chapter.

In this chapter, we learned about the importance of using automation and deployment pipelines to meet the challenge of packaging, building, and releasing your API project safely and easily to a public web server. We also took a dive into the world of DevOps to understand how to use these three DevOps practices:

  • Continuous integration to make sure our code is stable and tested often.
  • Continuous delivery to make the process of building and releasing our projects safe and consistent.
  • Continuous deployment to automate the entire process of testing, building, and releasing into production.

Along the way we learned how to use the Heroku cloud platform to implement level two of our DevOps maturity ladder by supporting continuous delivery using the Git command-line tool.
