“The CI Guys”

December 1st, 2008

It has been almost 8 years since I helped to get the CruiseControl project started. In that time, I have talked to countless people that are trying to reach that point of CI bliss, but they don’t even know where to start. Probably an equal number of people have come to me through the likes of the CITCON conference, its mailing list, or other industry conferences having run into problems with their CI environments that they just can’t overcome. Usually, within an hour or so, I can give them something of substance to work on…somewhere to go from where they are today.

Of course, I never charge for this time. It wouldn’t even make sense. It’s just common decency to help out your fellow build engineer, isn’t it? Well, I think so. And it leaves me with a good feeling in my heart. Wouldn’t it be great if I could help more people in exactly the same way?

To that end, I am pleased to announce that Jeffrey and I have officially started offering a cool service to people that are looking for advice on their Continuous Integration landscapes. And, it won’t cost you anything.
