Google has announced a partnership with Microsoft-owned GitHub to make a crucial element of modern software development, Continuous Integration, fast and easy.

As part of the new collaboration, GitHub, a major software development platform, is getting connected to Google’s Cloud Build, the company’s new CI/Continuous Delivery (CD) platform

“Together, we will provide fast, frictionless, and convenient Continuous Integration (CI) for any repository on GitHub, integrated directly into the GitHub developer workflow,” Melody Meckfessel, Vice President, Engineering, Google Cloud, wrote in a blog post on Thursday.

The integration of Cloud Build with GitHub makes it quick to adopt CI and validate changes by integrating code early and often, bringing a host of benefits to developers, directly from their GitHub workflow.

“GitHub is excited to partner with Google to make CI for cloud-native application development painless. The ability to use Cloud Build for CI as a part of the GitHub workflow is just the start of this partnership and we look forward to building more in the future with Google,” Jason Warner, Senior Vice President of Technology at GitHub wrote in a separate post.

Google and GitHub have a long history of working together.

“We have a shared belief in the principles and practices of open source, and a shared vision of productive developers and software teams. We have worked together on improvements to the Git client and protocol, as well as other projects,” Meckfessel said, adding that Googlers contributed to nearly 30,000 repositor on GitHub last year.

Commuters in the national capital can now view “auto-rickshaw” routes as well as fares on Google Maps app, tech giant Google Monday said.

“Starting today, commuters in Delhi will be able to see a new public transport mode in Google Maps — auto-rickshaws. By selecting this mode of transport, commuters will be able to view suggested routes for the ride as well as the estimated auto-rickshaw fares,” Google said in a statement.

The new feature will reflect fares based on the official fare model shared by the Delhi Traffic Police, it said.

The latest version of the application includes enhanced voice input.

This feature will be available in the Google Maps app on the Android devices.

The idea is to incorporate one of most commonly used modes of public transport in Google Maps and share transparent information about the price of journey, Google Maps Product Manager Vishal Dutta said.

“Currently, for an unfamiliar journey, commuters often overpay and don’t have an idea about the distance or best route,” he added.

Dutta said the feature will also help the users plan their journey better.

“…so they could look at the expected cost of the auto-rickshaw ride and decide whether they want to take it all the way, or perhaps take a different mode of transport instead — like a bus or the metro,” he explained.
