The purpose of continuous integration
At yesterday's successful Continuous Integration and Testing
Conference, it occurred to me that the aim of continuous integration is
to addict people to particular feelings. When they don't feel them,
they'll do things to produce them. Those actions
are good ones; they'll solve or head off problems. Those feelings are:
A well-founded feeling that the product is making steady
The feeling of being part of a buzz of activity. People are
moving fast and making things happen.
A feeling of openness. What people are doing is visible; one
person's effect on another is immediately at hand.
