I’m Speaking at the South Sound .NET Users Group

Wednesday, January 7, 2009 – 11:23 AM

Postponed – Due to flooding, road closures and the impending end of life as we know it. We’ll be rescheduling in April.

I’m speaking tomorrow night (8th Jan) at the South Sound .NET Users Group in Olympia on Continuous Integration and some of the tricks we’ve used at Microsoft to get the most out of it.

Continuous Integration and Defense In Depth: Experiences at Microsoft

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.

7pm at the Olympia Center. You can find more details at http://www.ssdotnet.org/.
