Mission: Continuous Integration

05.25.07

When I first accepted this mission I was so excited I imagined my self doing a happy dance, it was a Latin dance because maracas are cool. I thought this was going to be great! I am going to have an automated build process that hooks into source control so it will build the latest check in, run unit test, and then give you feed back on how every thing worked out. I was not in the least bit intimidated by the complexity of how all that may be because well all shops should have this, it can’t be any harder than installing Visual Studio, right? After about an hour of research my head exploded.

I have a lot of learning to do but I have found some references that will hopefully lead me in the right direction.
