While on the free plan you can run 1 build for private repositories and 3 builds for public repositories simultaneously. All other builds will queue and run once the earlier ones finish. You can always add additional containers to run more builds simultaneously or take advantage of parallelism and get your test suite running faster.

On the band wagon I was in less than 2 seconds. I had to scratch that niggling itch I had initially of not being able to get it to work with Radpath, my Elixir baby.
I am glad I did. There are some things I really like about it:
- The main thing. Cache folders period. The ability for me to set cache folders greatly cuts down on the time it takes to run tests. For Radpath, it completed first way ahead of Travis and Drone. This to me is the main reason I started paying attention again.
- Ability to let you open up a ssh session to check on running test by just the flick on an option. It's slightly rough and induced a few minutes of head scratching, but I am glad this is there.
- Parallelism sounds just great to me, and I am itching to try this feature next.
- The configuration file does not require you to understand rocket science and is pretty much self explanatory. See below
- Great support. I got personal emails from some of their devels even though I was still pretty much a freeloader up until now.
For those running Elixir projects, you can use my ci scripts as a sample:
They do support quite a wide range of languages out of the gate:
- Java and even
So, yes second time around testing with CircleCI, they have got my attention. I am curious to see what they are up to next. Try it, who knows you might just be pleasantly surprised. Happy CI-ing!
