If you are Martin Fowler and the crew at ThoughtWorks, Continuous Integration is a non-event. A weekend seems hardly enough time to promote myself to the guru rank that Mr. Fowler garners; so I set a slightly more realistic set of goals for the weekend.


  • Integration with VSTS Source Control
  • Tests to be run at build time (using MSTest)
  • Build Failure upon test failure

The raging hippie in me found it hard to refrain from adding Lava Lamp support to my list of goals! Maybe I can convince the team to look at this down the road.
