Orange: improved product development practices through CI

Orange Labs UK: Lab Life from Adam Batchelor on Vimeo.

Need

Orange Labs UK continuously develops new mobile products for the Orange Group. The products target Orange’s customers both in the high-end segment as well as emerging markets, and represent a variety of mobile technologies. In order to improve their development processes, Orange asked Futurice to help with setting up an environment and common practices that allow them to better manage these projects in future.

Solution

Futurice deployed a local GitLab installation that is synchronized with GitHub, added Testflight to selected products and set up a Jenkins Continuous Integration system for iOS, Android, Tizen and Phonegap development. In order to promote the use of CI as part of good development practices, Futurice also arranged a CI workshop for lead developers.
