Paul just alerted me to the fact that my TechEd Europe presentation on Continuous Integration with and without Team System is now available online at MSDN Showtime.
Implementing Continuous Integration: With and Without Team System
In this session we'll dive into a world where the system is built and run on a daily basis, and even on an hourly basis. We'll discuss Tools and Libraries that help you get there with VS 2003, 2005 and Team System. Even with Express tools - it's all possible, and
more easyeasier than you think. (more info here)
Here's where you can see a preview and the full talk (You may need to login with your windows live ID, which is why I put the second link after this one)
Here's the direct URL to see the (high definition) video without registration
Some points you'll see in the talk:
- When I show the first automated build, I miconfigure it. Then I get in trouble when I want to change the build configuration easily. Instead, I choose to create a whole new build type because it would be faster. Today I would have solved it with this free addin by Attrice. More info here.
- I'm using Zoomit to zoom into the slides and demos I'm showing. A very handy tool. Though I did find that for the people sitting close to the screen, too much zooming may cause sea sickness... sorry :)
- I talk about how the MSBuild team used Test Driven Development to create MSBuild. Here's an audio interview I did with Kieran Mockford, a PM on that team about that subject.
- They cut my song from the end! How uncool is that? :(
It's always a bit funny to see yourself on a talk using video. I always see many flaws in myself. I'm pretty sure I'm a little cross-eyed on that video, actually. And I look way too much at my slide for help. I couldn't bear to watch it all...
