Automatic VCS Triggers, MSTest, and NUnit integration made our workflow much faster and efficient. It just felt more… more»

What needs improvement?

The upgrade process could be smoother. Upgrading major versions can often cause some pain.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Start with the free tier for a few build configs and see how it works for you, then according to your scale find the… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

TFS, back at the time TFS carried too much overhead for us. So, we looked for a better solution out there. When we… more»

What other advice do I have?

It really is dependent on your product needs. Do market research and see the pros and cons versus open source or any other… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are: * Build chains - it's really easy to set up all of your build dependencies * Snapshot dependencies and triggers - you always build the correct code as a snapshot is taken at the moment you run the build chain… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It provides repeatable CI/CD throughout our company with lots of feedback on failures and successes to the intended audiences via email and Slack. This speeds up release cycles tremendously. Also, it helps when it comes to PCI/auditing (if set… more»

What needs improvement?

It will benefit this solution if they keep up to date with other CI/CD systems out there. Although I think TeamCity has everything anyone would need, and covers almost every scenario, it needs to keep evolving just to appear to be in sync with… more»

Software Tools Developer II at a tech vendor with 1,001-5,000 employees
Dec 03 2017

What is most valuable?

* Templates * Meta-runners * Plugins * Multiple version control system support * REST API support

How has it helped my organization?

We can build our code daily and automatically, with email notification for failures. It's easy to move to a new release… more»

What needs improvement?

REST API support lacks many features in customization of builds, jobs, and settings. Also, integration with newer… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I don't handle pricing so I can't really advise on this.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

No previous solution.

What other advice do I have?

Use Templates and meta-runners, they are very useful in scaling your product with new releases.

Web Developer and Software Architect at a tech vendor with 1-10 employees
Feb 25 2018

What is most valuable?

The three best features are the following: * Automated builds triggered on check-in * Execution of unit tests with code coverage reports * Automated deployment to various environments.

How has it helped my organization?

Being the sole TDD developer in an organization is not enough if the rest of the team does not test as well. Using TeamCity and emailing everyone on fail is one way to emphasize the importance of testing code and showing management why taking… more»

What needs improvement?

Last time I used it, dotnet compilation had to be done via PowerShell scripts. There was actually a lot that had to be scripted. Whether to present an error code or just throw an exception, it was unclear, as well as having to paste a script… more»

What do you think of TeamCity?

What is most valuable?

Good visualization of builds Easy configuration Good integration with IDE and JetBrains products

How has it helped my organization?

People react faster on failing builds.

What needs improvement?

I would suggest creating simple and advanced configurations. Advanced configurations will give more customizations like Jenkins does.

For how long have I used the solution?

Three to five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Generally no, just in a few cases.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No, adding new build agents were enough.

How is customer service and technical support?

I would give technical support an eight out of 10. They provide help quickly.

Which solutions did we use previously?

At another…

Lead Engineer with 1,001-5,000 employees
Apr 15 2018

What is most valuable?

I have not yet implemented the remote build feature, but this will be a big plus. We want to be able to build legacy products on a build agent without developers needing to have obsolete tool sets installed on their local PC.

How has it helped my organization?

The flexibility of TeamCity allows it to fit in workflows that I have yet to imagine. As we learn how to configure the build processes to fit our needs, it will prove to be a significant time saver.

What needs improvement?

Their online documentation is fairly extensive, but sometimes you can end up navigating in circles to find answers. I would like them (or partner with someone) to provide training classes to help newcomers get things up and running more quickly.
