What is Codeship?
Manually installing dependencies, setting up build servers and dealing with different CI providers on all your projects is not only time-consuming it also increases the probability of human error. Codeship automates this entire process. As soon as you push code to your git repository the tests start to run and a webhook is fired off to your project dashboard in your CI provider of choice. With just a few clicks in your Codeship dashboard you can hook up a new branch or merge request and Codeship will automatically run your test suite. And not only that each test gives you a detailed report so you know exactly what’s been tested and what isn’t.
What is Debian?
Debian is a free operating system ( OS ) for your computer. An operating system is the set of basic programs and utilities that make your computer run. Debian uses the Linux kernel (the core of an OS) along with thousands of software packages (also called 'packages') that are each distributed in a separate file. The packages contain the program code that does all the work, and are connected to each other in what is called a package dependency hierarchy . Each package depends on some smaller package or packages, which in turn depend on even smaller packages, and so on.
