There 8767 s also a wonderful essay of Orwell 8767 s called 8775 A Good Word for the Vicar of Bray, 8776 where he writes about a racy ballad, planting trees, and other pleasant subjects, and you get a taste of the writer he might have been had he not been so compelled by the bleak politics of his time.
RS: Well, we lived in four or five places on two continents before I turned five, and then my mother 8767 s Irish-peasant instincts won out over my wandering-Jew father and we settled north of San Francisco for the rest of my childhood and adolescence. So I was and am very rooted in a particular place and ecology. In the movie There Will Be Blood, the most moving passage for me was when they ride to the sea: the rolling California hills hit me like the face of a beloved. Of course Thoreau once remarked that he had traveled widely in Concord, and though I was in Iceland when we first were in touch for this interview and have been to Mexico twice in the past year, mostly I like to travel widely in San Francisco and the larger home that California and the southwest are for me.
The easiest way for me to explain what CI is and how it works is to show a quick example of how it works with the development of a small feature. Let's assume I have to do something to a piece of software, it doesn't really matter what the task is, for the moment I'll assume it's small and can be done in a few hours. (We'll explore longer tasks, and other issues later on.)
BLVR: You wrote an essay in 7558 called 8775 Men Explain Things to Me 8776 (which appeared in truncated form in the . Times ). In it, you tell the story of a man at a party who told you about a book you really should know about that turned out to be the book you wrote, River of Shadows. The essay hit on issues of gender and authority, but it also seems to be tied to this matter of audience and how you are read and by whom.
RS: Don 8767 t you think when they say, 8775 Of course, but we have to go nuclear, 8776 they sound like those unconvincing, unclear people who six years ago were saying, 8775 Of course I am against war and but we have to invade Iraq before those terrorists get us 8776 ? They want to have their cake and not think about it too. And they 8767 re wrong. And uninformed.
If you have continuous integration, it removes one of the biggest barriers to frequent deployment. Frequent deployment is valuable because it allows your users to get new features more rapidly, to give more rapid feedback on those features, and generally become more collaborative in the development cycle. This helps break down the barriers between customers and development - barriers which I believe are the biggest barriers to successful software development.
When teams are introducing CI, often this is one of the hardest things to sort out. Early on a team can struggle to get into the regular habit of working mainline builds, particularly if they are working on an existing code base. Patience and steady application does seem to regularly do the trick, so don't get discouraged.

My general rule of thumb is that every developer should commit to the repository every day. In practice it's often useful if developers commit more frequently than that. The more frequently you commit, the less places you have to look for conflict errors, and the more rapidly you fix conflicts.
Once the commit build is good then other people can work on the code with confidence. However there are further, slower, tests that you can start to do. Additional machines can run further testing routines on the build that take longer to do.
