On Wednesday night, I returned to the Montgomery County Java User’s Group (MCJUG) to give a follow-up to last year’s Continuous Delivery talk.  This week, I focused on the tools and techniques that a developer, team and organization can use to migrate to Continuous Delivery.  The subject areas which I touch on are: Version Control Build Automation […]

Gotcha when changing TeamCity’s default port

November 17, 2011

I ran into an issue today where I changed my TeamCity default port (from 8080) and found that my build agents were suddenly disconnected.  After some fiddling around, I discovered that I needed to manually change each Build Agent’s configuration to point to the new master server port.

I have encountered more than one development team who takes the approach of building their application from source for every environment they plan on deploying to. While this approach works (and depending on the technology, may be necessary), it introduces numerous opportunities for errors and makes debugging a failed deployment increasingly difficult. By migrating to a Build Once, Deploy Many approach, your team can simplify their deployment process, by making it repeatable and easier to debug.

Enforcing Coding Standards

February 10, 2010

While most teams recognize the importance of coding standards, I have witnessed too many development teams who define a set of coding standards, yet do not enforce them.  If you are not enforcing the coding standard, then you have no way of knowing your team’s compliance with the standard and its effectiveness is negated.  In […]
