A couple colleagues suggested I introduce people to the Jenkins (formerly Hudson) continuous integration system at the upcoming AgileDC conference. It's on May 14, 2011 in Reston, VA, just outside Washington DC. I hope give a brief slideware overview, then a live demo; I'd like to keep it fairly hands-on and technical.
Jenkins makes it easy to watch code commits, then check it out, build, run tests, and notify developers quickly of any problems while its still fresh in their minds. The ability to graph things like code test coverage builds a friendly competitiveness that's healthy for development efforts. Getting Jenkins running is much easier then some other systems, so there's really no excuse not to set it up. The Chuck Norris plugin is the real reason so many developers use it. :-)
Here's a link to the presentation though I spent a large part of the time on a live demo.
