I don't want this CI

I love CI and I’m sure that it’s a required part of the software development. It helps a lot to test software to find issues as soon, as possible. CI save thousands of person-hours by automatically project testing. It works almost in the background and guides you to the next steps: go forward or step back and fix the issue.

Everything is written above is valid only for good CI. It should not be too noisy. It tesh every change in a automatic way. It’s stupid if you need to run some tests on “CI” manually. It’s not CI. A lot of false-positive jobs makes CI annoying. If there’s a lot of non-voting jobs, it’s not useful at all. You’ll ignore such jobs in the future if they fail on a regular basis. All tests results should show you the current status of a project or a patch. If tests results are not clear, it means that CI or tests should be changed.

Every engineer before setting up the CI should read this book: Continuous Delivery: Reliable Software Releases through Build, Test, and Deployment Automation.

It’s obvious that CI requires a lot of resources for huge projects: both hardware and human. It’s the price you should pay be successful.
