Scaling Continuous Integration – Webinar

This webinar discusses how to do stage based continuous integration for large Agile teams.

Continuous Integration is an increasingly popular Agile technique for discovering and fixing problems early. Yet as larger groups start to adopt it, a problem arises. The larger the team and the larger the product, the greater the chance that check-ins across different team members will invalidate each other.
A stage-based continuous integration approach is an extension of the common practice of shielding coding changes across team members by only checking in tested changes and updating workspaces when developers are ready to absorb each other’s changes. Each team performs a team-based integration first, and cross-integrates the team’s changes with the mainline on success. This approach limits project-wide churn and allows scaling to large projects.
