Public Build Engineer Bootcamp
June 23-24, 2009 - Brisbane, Australia
Not very long ago a build engineer was the guy who typed "make" and then copied the compiled project up to the network. But as Agile methodologies quicken the pace of development, build and deployment must become automated or they become a serious bottleneck on team productivity. And with an increased emphasis on testing and metrics collection the build process has become about a lot more than just building. Build engineers are in the automation hotseat and need the skills to handle a wide range of demands while creating a reliable infrastructure the entire team can depend upon. Are you ready for that challenge?
A two day intensive training course designed to get build engineers off to a good start. The course covers all the fundamentals required to maintain and enhance a solid continuous integration infrastructure. These include, but are not limited to, build tools like Ant and Maven, automated testing platforms like jUnit and Fitnesse, and continuous integration tools like CruiseControl and Hudson. All this is grounded in the fundamental principles of CI - repeatable, independent, and portable.
