dnrTV Show #64: Scott Hanselman and Jay Flowers on CI Factory
In a historic episode of dnrTV, Carl has two guests (Jay Flowers and Scott Hanselman). Essentially Jay Flowers is an expert in Continuous Integration (CI), and the author of CI Factory, a helper application for setting up CI systems. Scott complements Jay as a user of CI Factory, and one who has had to set up CI without it! In this show Jay shows Scott and Carl how to set up a complete CI system with Subversion as the source control system. Jay uses SubText, a popular blog software package, as a demo source project that gets run through the CI system.
Scott Hanselman works for Microsoft as a Senior Program Manager in the Developer Division, aiming to spread good information about developing software, very often on the Microsoft stack. Before this he was the Chief Architect at Corillian Corporation, now a part of Checkfree, for 6+ years. He was also involved in a few Microsoft Developer things for many years like the MVP and RD programs and will speak about computers (and other passions) whenever someone will listen. He's written a few books, most recently with Bill Evjen and Devin Rader on ASP.NET. He blogs at http://www.hanselman.com and podcasts at http://www.hanselminutes.com. Jay Flowers is the leader of the CI Factory open source project. He contributed the CI Factory section to the book Windows Developer Power Tools. Jay has also been involved in the MbUnit project and other smaller open source projects. Jay's day job is as an automation engineer. Aside from software development Jay is interested in Zen, Jazz Fusion, congas, harmonicas, and beer.
