CircleCI notification orbs were built to deliver messages to the appropriate channels when a build is successful or when it fails. This helps everyone involved in a project stay up-to-date with the status of the latest build. In this tutorial, you will explore and implement notifications sent to a Slack channel and also sent via SMS. To accomplish this task, you will make use of the Slack and Twilio orbs from the CircleCI orb registry.
For the last few years, many development teams have replaced traditional data centers with cloud-hosted infrastructure. Cloud adoption continues to grow, and teams are updating applications to leverage cloud-based services. But for many organizations, adopting a single cloud provider to host all their applications and data can put their business at risk. To reduce these risks, some organizations are distributing resources across multiple cloud providers in a specifically designed way.
Development operations (DevOps) combines best practices, cultural transformation, and tools to improve your organization’s software development and delivery velocity. Teams can employ DevOps regardless of an organization’s size and continuously deliver new software features, updates, and patches to enhance software quality and customer experiences.
