The Missing Piece of the Continuous Integration Puzzle

By Greg Law

Test Driven Development, Continuous Integration (CI), and testing with elastic compute in the cloud mean that a typical software project today will run 1000s of times more tests every hour than an equivalent sized project would have run ten years ago. This is undeniably a huge advance on previous best practices, but it does bring with it a new challenge: how to triage and manage all of the test failures? This talk will investigate the implications of this challenge and shall examine techniques and technologies that can overcome it. Only then can CI finally deliver on its promise.
