Continuous Integration touches all parties: clients, project managers, system admins, and developers, front and back end. If that’s you, you need to know what CI is.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) November 27, 2013
The upcoming presentation, aptly named “Do-It-Yourself Continuous Integration” was last seen at BadCamp (an annual Drupal users summit) to a full house where Drupal users, IT Managers, CEOs and more clamored to learn about the principles of the trending methodology, Continuous Integration. The session has also been presented at other Drupal conferences, and various industry trade shows. Chappell’s blog, Continuous Integration Delivers Advantages for Businesses was well-received and garnered requests for even more information.
Continuous Integration is considered one of the foremost and fundamental development methodologies in software development today. But, there are many misconceptions surrounding the topic. The terminology has been trending in countless blogs, articles and industry events. The popularity of Continuous Integration is rooted in efficiency. Simply put, strategies implementing CI save development hours and dollars with automation. CI is often mistakenly synonymous with Automated Testing, Test Driven Development or Automation. While these can be elements of a CI process and can benefit business, they don’t account for the whole CI picture.
On Thursday, December 19th, 2013, Allan Chappell will explain what Continuous Integration means relative to Drupal and Introduce the tools available to implement this methodology now. Additionally, he will demonstrate what a CI implementation looks like in practice. Attendees will explore what Continuous Integration is and what it is not with step-by-step examples; they will even walk through a DIY kit to start the process immediately.
The presentation is fairly technical and is best-suited for developers, systems administrators, software project managers, C-Level executives and IT professionals.
