Continuous Discussions (#c9d9): Episode 11 Recap – Build Acceleration


If you build it – they will come

It happens after coding. But before testing. It’s the software build step – and it’s a big part of Continuous Integration.  As lines of code (LOC) become exponentially larger, applications more complex and more critical to your business – how can you keep builds fast and accurate?

Yesterday on #c9d9 we got to hear from folks on what needs to happen – from a tooling and process perspective – to accelerate your builds. Learn about the impact that long/complex/many builds have on your pipeline, how to deal with dependencies and legacy code, and some concrete tips for making sure your builds go faster, while not sacrificing accuracy, or your sanity.
