
Reduce risk
Increase quality
Enable better project visibility
Establish greater product confidence
Reduce repetitive/manual processes
Continuous Integration

Also called Commit Stage
CI Defined
Continuous Integration is a software development practice
where members of a team integrate their work frequently,
usually each person integrates at least daily - leading to
multiple integrations per day. Each integration is verified
by an automated build (including test) to detect
integration errors as quickly as possible. Many teams find
that this approach leads to significantly reduced
integration problems and allows a team to develop
cohesive software more rapidly.
– Martin Fowler
http://www.martinfowler.com/articles/continuousIntegration.html
CI Defined
CI is the embodiment of tactics that gives us, as software
developers, the ability to make changes in our code,
knowing that if we break software, we’ll receive immediate
feedback...[It is] the centerpiece of software development,
as it ensures the health of software through running a
build with every change.
– Paul Duvall
Continuous Integration
CI Defined
An automated process that builds, tests, analyzes and
deploys an application to help ensure it functions
correctly, follows best practices, and is deployable. This
process runs with each source code change and provides
immediate feedback to the development team.
- Continuous Integration in .NET

Version Control System (VCS)




Check in often, several times per day
Do not branch – Always work on trunk
Everything goes into VCS
Tools: TFS, Subversion, Git, Mercurial
Project Organization

Each developer:
Uses the same folder structure
 Uses the same tools
 Uses the same 3rd party components, placed in
project folders


Check everything out from VCS and build
Continuous Integration Servers

Manage the CI process
Check out source
 Compile
 Run tests
 Give feedback


Tools: TFS, Jenkins, Team City, Cruise Control

Best Practices







Commit code frequently
Don’t commit broken code
Fix broken builds immediately
Write automated developer tests
All tests and inspections must pass
Run private builds (each developer runs tests
on their own code)
Avoid getting broken code (don’t check out
broken code)
