What is Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD)? Why is CI/CD good? (as written by OpenAI ChatGPT)

I originally asked ChatGPT to tell me what Spotify’s golden path concept is, but it instead told me the basics of CI/CD. I think it’s pretty acurate for a quicj overview. It even goes over some benefits!

Here’s the transcript that it generated:

The Golden Path is a term used to describe the ideal flow or sequence of events that should happen when developing and deploying software. It is a way of thinking about the processes of building and releasing software that emphasizes collaboration, continuous delivery, and automation.

At Spotify, the Golden Path starts with a team of engineers who work together to write code for a new feature or.

They use agile methodologies and collaborative tools to ensure that the code is of high quality and meets the requirements of the project. Once the code is ready, it is automatically built and tested by a continuous integration system. The system runs a series of automated tests to ensure that the code is working properly and meets the standards set by the team.

If the test pass, the code is automatically deployed to a staging environment where it can be tested by the team and other stakeholders. This allows the team to verify that the code is working as expected and to make any necessary adjustments before releasing it to production. Once the code has been tested and approved in the staging environment, it is automatically deployed to production.

This ensures that the code is released to the users quickly and consistently without any manual intervention or delays. Overall, the Golden path at Spotify is all about, is a way of thinking about the processes of building and releasing software that emphasizes collaboration, continuous delivery, and automation.

It is designed to help teams deliver higher quality software quickly and efficiently while minimizing the risk of errors and disruptions.

Like I said, not correct, but it’s good enough for quick hit stuff like this, and especially a good start if you have no idea what CI/CD is in the first place.
