What is TravisCI?
Travis CI is a hosted, distributed Continuous Integration service used to build and test software projects hosted at GitHub. Travis CI is integrated with GitHub pull requests and supports all programming languages that can be built into docker images, making it very handy to setup.
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.
