How to automate CI checks for PRs in WordPress delivery
On April 6, Alley Vice President of Software Development Kevin Fodness and Director of Development Operations Ben Bolton participated in a free webinar, How to automate CI checks for PRs in WordPress delivery with Buddy. The webinar was designed for developers interested in adding automated code quality checks to pull requests. It was also designed for WordPress-focused digital agencies that want to shorten the feedback loop between their team and the client and improve their product’s code quality.
Diving into this webinar will teach you how to use Buddy to run automated tests and linting checks against WordPress plugins and themes. You will also learn to set up a pipeline for WordPress themes and plugins, with continuous integration that helps improve code quality.

Co-hosts Sarah Rose Belok and John Ragozzine will demystify “this is a safe space” and other well-meaning, but ultimately empty, platitudes we tell our teams. The reality is, the same psychological “SAFE-ness” is
