As you noticed we host a few installations of CDash, such as my.cdash.org
and open.cdash.org.  The software is also available under an open-source
license, so you can also set it up & run it yourself.

The main value of CDash is in organizing & displaying your build/test
results.  How you actually test changes to your code base is up to you.
Since your code already lives on GitHub, I will point out that TravisCI and
CircleCI are popular and free options.  There's plenty of other ways to
accomplish this too.
