The term "continuous integration," commonly attributed to Martin Fowler, who first wrote about the software development practice back in 2000 (see Resources for a link to the article), is one of the pillars of modern programming techniques. CI involves automatically building and testing an application at frequent intervals on a dedicated integration server. Developers regularly commit small updates and are notified rapidly if their changes cause the build to fail.
