Last year, I gave a presentation at the Front Range Code Camp titled “Continuous Integration in Under an Hour.” Here’s the abstract:
Automating software builds and tests using continuous integration can improve the quality of a software project, reduce risk, and make it possible to quickly move from development to release. But all the different tools and scripts involved in setting up CI can make the process seem too overwhelming for most projects to try. In this session, Richard Lawrence develops an application and continuous integration scripts from scratch in less than an hour.
With a 2007 Front Range Code Camp in the works, I’m not sure how long the 2006 session materials will stay up at the Code Camp website, so I’m mirroring them here. There are slides, samples, and templates included.
