Semaphore Boosters: Move Faster with Automatic Parallel CI Testing

As any application grows in features, running all automated tests in the continuous integration (CI) environment begins to take a significant amount of time. A slow CI build — anything longer than 10 minutes — takes a toll on everyone's focus, flow and productivity. How do you move fast when even a trivial update or hotfix takes 15 minutes to reach production? Half an hour? Forty-five minutes?

By popular demand, we're happy to announce that we've made some tweaks to Slack notifications coming from Semaphore.

Here's what our build and deployment notifications now look like:

We experimented with different approaches, ranging from minimal to multi-line, rich format messages, and used them for our projects for several weeks. In the end, we settled on a minimal, yet informative single-line format that includes all the key information (what, where) and links to relevant resources.

Flaky tests can be hard to track down. When you are working on a new feature, your builds can fail because of one or a few unrelated flaky tests. In this case a rebuild can help to make your build pass.

Until now, a rebuild of a failed build replaced that build. This way, both the logs and the exact reason behind the failure becomes inaccessible for further inspection.

Running code in different environments can often produce unexpected behavior. Development and testing environments strive to replicate production envrionments as closely as possible, but there's still much to be desired. This is where containers come in. When using Docker-based deployments, environments for development, staging and production are virtually the same, and they can be rapidly reproduced on-demand. As more and more developers find these benefits appealing, there's an emerging need for hosting and managing Docker images without having an own infrastructure to do so.
