Jenkins vs TeamCity: What are the differences?

Both Jenkins and TeamCity are continuous integration tools that serve many of the same purposes. Jenkins is an open source tool, while TeamCity is a proprietary offering from JetBrains. Jenkins is older than TeamCity, so it has a larger community and wider use in general; it appears in far more stacks than its competitor. TeamCity is considered by users to be easier to configure and more straightforward to use, while Jenkins is appreciated for its rich set of plugins and integrations.
