  • Jenkins

    Seems Jenkins is moving aware from pure build into the central management role for all of dev/test/qa environments.

    I've always been impressed by Jenkins low barrier to getting started and now my team have started using the master/slave setup for build and test servers, I'm even more impressed.

    I'll get our guys to look at the dist/fork plugin - that looks interesting.

    And I forgot to say that Kohsuke Kawaguchi is a nice guy - helped me when I couldn't figure out how to use SVN in the early days of Jenkins' predecessor.

  • We will still need to run tests locally, just not all of them.

    Just a comment, on about minute 38, around not running tests locally....

    Latency could also be reduced by making tests run quickly.... Devs are always going to need to run tests locally for debugging purposes. So I'd like to see something like osgi/akka/scala in eclipse keeping my code built, and the actors/services/whatever always updated and running so that I can run a test at any time and get near immediate feedback.

    Though I wouldn't run them all locally. :)
