Continuous Integration with Chris Stevenson 3

Posted by Conrad Benham on July 09, 2008

Core to any serious software project is the build environment and source code repository. When developers write code they must check that code into a source code repository that allows developers to share their code changes with other developers on the project. But how can one be sure that changes checked in by one developer will work with changes introduced by another developer? The key development practice used to support this is Continuous Integration (CI). Integrating small changes often leads to a system that is always in a working state. Tools have been developed over the years to support this practice.

To talk about CI, we have Chris Stevenson. Chris is a senior Agile dude at ThoughtWorks who has worked on many different projects employing CI successfully. He will discuss what the practice of CI is and why an organisation serious about software quality should adopt it. Specifically, Chris will talk about the team dynamic required to adopt CI covering how it should be used and what to do when things go wrong. Topics will include the cost benefit of introducing a CI environment to an existing build process. He will also give a demonstration of tools supporting CI the practice of using Cruise Control.

Where: ThoughtWorks Hong Kong Office
Address: Room 1304, 13/F, Tai Tung Building, 8 Fleming Road, Wanchai
