Modern Project Infrastructures
The support infrastructure for your software project is a crucial factor for success. A new generation of tools offers significant benefits over their predecessors. This talk discusses how to choose the right mix of tools for a top-shelf project infrastructure.
The support infrastructure for your software project is a crucial factor for success. Many projects waste enormous amounts of time fighting through projects without the help of good tools. Other projects are on the right track, but could be even more successful by filling some crucial infrastructure gaps or by moving to improved tools, or by implementing policies that maximize the tools' power.
This talk looks at the latest generation of infrastructure tools, what makes them better, and how to use them well. Additionally, we'll examine the role of the infrastructure on projects and identify principles that help us understand what kinds of infrastructure we need. Tools examined will include CruiseControl, Rake, Subversion, Trac, and others.
