We help companies deliver software reliably and repeatedly using Continuous Delivery in the Cloud.
Before committing work to the central repository, you may want to review the changes you’ve made. This can be achieved by running Apache Subversion’s ‘svn status’ command at the top of your working copy, which will print out a list of all your local changes.
CIO.com (and the print edtion) is reporting that CIOs are increasingly looking to embed IT staff in the business units they serve rather than centralize them all directly under the CIO.
I’m moving all my side projects to run on GitHub as open source repositories. One of my goals in doing this is to facilitate engagement around my projects, as opposed to developing them in isolation.
Even though many of you may have heard of Microsoft’s virtualization solution, you may not know much about it.
When developing an IntelliJ plugin, testing backward compatibility across old versions of the IDEA plugin SDK can be painful. Here's how to configure TeamCity for continuos integration across multiple SDK versions.
This month the topic is Server Virtualization. Specifically, we’ll be discussing and helping you learn more about Microsoft’s virtualization platform: Hyper-V.
This week we're talking to Juri Strumpflohner, web app developer, blogger, and martial artist.
Here's a 52-minute video that should be mandatory for all developers and their management to watch, even if after watching it they decide to not do the same. It’s all about toggles, Trunk Based Development (TBD) and Branch by Abstraction.
In February of 2013, the US-based IT Pro Technology Evangelists wrote up 20 articles in our 19-part series, “Migration and Deployment.”
Instructions for installing Git and Virtualenv whether you're on OSX or a major Linux distro.
Working with Properties in Spring. Focuses on registering properties via the XML namespace element, Java Annotations and by hand. Also Discusses the newly introduced Property Support in Spring 3.1.
It didn’t take long. A few months after we released an open source continuous integration tool (Anthill) in 2001, we were asked, “It’s great that I have the build setup, now how do I deploy to the test lab?”
My talk from JUG NYC from last summer has finally been uploaded to YouTube!
If you use Apache, then you most likely have DirectoryIndex enabled on your development server. This is the feature that lets you request a directory without a home document and see a list of folders and files.

One of the nicest things in git is that you can actually deploy code to production (or just your test environment) w/o implementing a complicated CI solution.
Continuous Delivery and DevOps are interdependent, not equivalent. Since the publication of Dave Farley and Jez Humble’s seminal book on Continuous Delivery in 2010, its rise within the IT industry has been paralleled by the growth of the DevOps movement.
How often do you commit? Once a week? Once a day? Once an hour? Every few minutes? The more often you commit, the less likely you are to make a mistake.
These two common (and usually overlooked) “anti-patterns” can cause problems like coupling, impedance mismatch and avoid delivery of business value. Let's talk about what they are and how do they affect the solutions.
