Integration Hell refers to the point in production when members on a delivery team integrate their individual code. In traditional software development environments, this integration process is rarely smooth and seamless, instead resulting in hours or perhaps days of fixing the code so that it can finally integrate. Continuous Integration (CI) aims to avoid this completely by enabling and encouraging team members to integrate frequently (e.g., hourly, or at least daily).
