    I recommend using Travis CI and/or Appveyor in all projects.

    Projects using these tools have given me confidence to know that I don't cause any breaking changes. Travis CI and Appveyor have functionality to test components of a project across multiple installation projects to ensure that modifications don't break a project. These tools integrate easily with GitHub and are useful in open source projects that must review contributions from many different people.

    Appveyor, is awesome, it provides a lot of functionalities and a reduced price. If you want .NET CI, appveyor is the best option. Ever. Awesome support, easy configuration, private nuget repo included, many integrations, and useful documentation. The only downside is, sometime it's a little bit slow.
