JetBrains TeamCity Review
I use it to increase visibility and clarity of build and deployment activities.


Valuable Features

There’s loads of valuable features but PowerShell Runner is invaluable.

Improvements to My Organization

It increases the visibility and clarity of build and deployment activities.

Room for Improvement

.net deployment needs improvement. Also, I'd like to see more NuGet/Octopus style features and Azure stuff.

Use of Solution

I've used it for over five years.

Deployment Issues

It's all currently hand rolled in PowerShell.

Stability Issues

Never ever had any stability issues.

Scalability Issues

I have encountered some issues using large number of agents, and using git.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

The agents are amongst the best available/experienced around.

Technical Support:

The agents are amongst the best available/experienced around.

Previous Solutions

I have used Jenkins, TFS, Cruise Control .net, and GO. I switched from using Cruise Control .net as TeamCity is easier to use and displays important information very well. It also has great support for integrating to other products, from JetBrains and other vendors – Atlassian, JIRA, and Windows AD.

Initial Setup

It's very, very simple.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

Setup is the licence (and my contract rate).

Other Solutions Considered

I have used all leading CI tools.

Other Advice

With low costs to adopt what are you waiting for?
