Elements of Enterprise CI

  • Heard where people were coming from
    • some people had scrum is evil issues
  • people saw benefit in prioritisation and categorising CI changes in their organisation
  • some people felt the need to distinguish between Agile technical and non-technical practices in the discussion
  • for teams that are already doing continuous intgration, it gives you a target to obtain
  • is obnoxious after insane (where to for teams that are already at the top level)?
  • tooling makes continuous integration trivial now (when Cruise Control was released many people thought it crazy that you might build on every release, not its a given)
  • the model was developed because people assume what is possible is based around their personal experiences
  • the model shows the industry norms and targets, and if your team is not at these levels you are behind the curve
  • discussion ensued for a while about needing 'rapid and frequent builds'

  • Discussion ensued about lengthy builds.
  • Discussion went onto the auditability of process - about perfect reproducability of process.
  • Went onto discussion of where people where at on building - 20% were on Novice and 20% on Intermediate. (Rest didn't give an answer)
  • Discussion went on to discussions of the next step after 'post insane' steps. People asked about anti-patterns - list of things that were 'pre-introductory' or 'do not do'.
  • Large discussion about relationship between developers and testers - and waterfall errors. JTF discussed about tendency of testers to hang onto an old build where defects had been fixed in a newer build.
  • People mentioned that QA group gets audited most heavily.
