Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST) is a private, interdisciplinary high education organization in Japan, funded by the Japanese government.

In OIST, we have a small Digital team to maintain all internal and external facing websites. In order to use our time effectively, we choose Drupal cloud hosting and implement CI & Auto testing in the development workflow which minimize our efforts on DevOps works.

There are three key factors that we want to achieve in the workflow:

  • Able to adapt to the Agile management
  • Easy to review code changes
  • Update and deploy automatically

In this topic, I will share how we adopt the workflow, what benefits and challenges are.
