TeamCity Training teaches all that is required how to set up a build server for CI and create build scripts using MSBuild to manage the overall build process. It is a powerful continuous integration that can be excelled out of the box.

TeamCity is a Java-based build management and continuous integration server from JetBrains. Continuous Integration is a fundamental pillar of running an Agile project. Knowing whether the latest checkins make or break the project and being able to fix mistakes quickly is important to reduce costs and avoid problems in the long run. In addition, with the recent popularity of continuous delivery and continuous deployment, it is becoming even more common to ship fixes and features to customers more quickly. Different aspects of a build pipeline are explored, including code compilation, testing, coverage, static code analysis, packaging, and deployment. This course is appropriate for developers new to the practice of continuous integration.

TeamCity Training Overview
Our course curriculum is designed with a view to enable trainees with the sufficient knowledge on the fundamentals of TeamCity. In the beginning, learn about Installing and running TeamCity. In further sections, have a brief overview of how TeamCity is managed for Java projects, .NET projects, Ruby projects and other methodologies. In the final module, learn to make master to make TeamCity production ready.
