South Sound .NET: Ade Miller on Continuous Integration

Please join us Thursday, January 8th for Ade Miller‘s (twitter) presentation on Continuous Integration and Defense In Depth: Experiences at Microsoft.

Presentation Summary
Continuous Integration (CI) is the practice of building and testing the application under development. Usually right after each and every check-in. CI grew out of the agile software development community but can add value to almost any project. This talk will describe the basic approach to CI and also some other practices teams can adopt to get even more out of their investment in CI. The talk will also cover the Microsoft patterns & practices team’s experience with CI and show some of the likely cost savings of adopting this practice on your team.
