Remote setup aims

The aim of this chapter is to setup the remote tooling to continuously ensure that the main branch has no detectable errors and can therefore be deployed into production at any time, and to allow multiple developers to collabortate.

CI

Continuous Integration, CI, is the process of continually and quickly integrating changes to the main branch. To achieve this changes must be tested to ensure that they can be safely integrated, hence CI is often synonymous with linting and testing.

Dependency checking

Dependency checking is checking that the versions of the dependencies installed have no known (reported) security issues. This is something that I check in CI with the build failing, and hence requiring fixing if there are known issues.
