One of the major areas we explored is how to make the feedback part of the CI more engaging. We discussed several options:

  • Extreme Feedback
  • Gamification - is it good or bad?
  • Do we really need CI in the first place?

Given the last point of our discussion, the focus shifted to alternatives to CI and how to keep up the quality of the code while still having fun :D.

Ambient orbs can be awesome!

Lava lamps can be legendary!

Horns can be head-splittingly fun!


From gold stars to karma points

The Simpsons did it!
