Execution of CI builds and tests in parallel

Leveraging parallel execution for CI builds and tests in mobile app development can significantly enhance developer productivity, shorten feedback loops, and improve overall efficiency. Consider the capabilities of tools such as Fastlane, Firebase Test Lab, and CI tools to achieve optimal parallelization and accelerate your mobile app development process.

Some of the benefits of parallel execution for mobile app CI builds are as follows:

  • Faster feedback: Parallel execution reduces the time required to build steps and test suites, providing quicker feedback on code changes. This enables developers to iterate faster and catch issues early in the development cycle.
  • Improved efficiency: By utilizing parallel execution, you can fully utilize available resources and distribute the workload across multiple agents or devices. This improves resource efficiency and maximizes the utilization of your CI infrastructure.
  • Scalability...
