On an average developers spend up to 20% of their time waiting on necessary builds and tests to finish.
Reason being ::
1.Slow build times– Slow build times are a cause of frustration for many developers. As developers iterate on their application, they aren’t able to merge new code changes into the master code line until necessary build and test runs have completed. The longer it takes this process to run the longer the developer has to wait and spend time monitoring the same.Optimizing the build and test execution speed is possible, through better scripting and caching, but it can take considerable time and expertise that many developers may not have.
2.Lack of hardware capacity– Hardware capacity and availability are the other reasons making developers and teams to remain ideal for longer time as physically builds and test runs become queued until the capacity becomes available , we found that this is the problem faced by most of the mobile application development companies as the immediate requirement of hardware is difficult to meet and this also increases the production cost of the project , hence relying on the pre-owned hardware devices becomes time consuming.
BuildPan solves the problem for both the cases by creating a complete seamless CI/CD pipeline which helps in creating faster builds along with continuous process of merging it into the master code after testing , also while using buildpan there is no constraint wrt hardware dependency as the developer can simultaneously focus on other productive work getting regular notifications on slack and mail as buildpan creates multiple builds and deploys it to the stakeholders.
