Jay Flowers came down to our humble Richmond DNUG tonight to talk about Continuous Integration and his rockin’ open-source product, CI Factory. It was a great demonstration of how to get a very robust automated build server up and running in literally minutes. Having set up quite a few automated build and CI environments myself over the years, I have a great appreciation for all the hard work that’s gone into a product like CI Factory.
So I’m looking forward to leveraging CI Factory in my future CI server implementations (which will hopefully be soon!)
Oh and some of the cool stuff he’s done in extending CCNet and NAnt was pretty impressive as well. Not to mention the extension of NCover to drive and generate code coverage for WatiN tests.
So if you need CI (and trust me, you do), then download CI Factory and check it out.
