Terraform your CICD Toolchain : SonarQube

So, in the previous article we’ve Terraformed GitHub (that must hurt), so let’s continue with another tool commonly used in a CICD process : SonarQube.

Idées Noires

Idées noires, translated as Franquin’s Last Laugh in English, is a collection of Black Comedy comic strips drawn by André Franquin, written by Franquin and Yann Delporte in 1977.
