Do you currently use a Continuous Integration system?
Since releasing the full featured FBServer in April, we’ve seen healthy growth in its adoption as a Continuous Integration Server; however, the 2008 FB Survey showed quite low adoption of Continuous Integration systems in general among FinalBuilder users.
More importantly, of those not using any CI system, 2/3’s did not intend to start using a CI system in the next 12 months!
Do you plan to start using a Continuous Integration system within the next 12 months?
For users of an automated build tool, most of whom have free access to a very easy-to-configure Continuous Integration server, these are incredibly low proportions! I can only speculate that perhaps the benefits of CI aren’t as well known, or appreciated, as the benefits of a fully automated build and release process.
This is the 3rd post in a series discussing insights uncovered in the 2008 FinalBuilder survey.
