I came across this blog post in Google Reader and thought I’d share it. The idea of being able to outsource the care and feeding of a continuous integration system to someone else is a very interesting one. Having implemented and maintained such systems (which I’ve blogged about in the past), I know it can be a lot of work (though using a product like TeamCity lightens the load considerably compared with CruiseControl.NET). Stelligent isn’t the first company to come up the idea of CI in the cloud, but they may be the first using all free/open source tools to implement it.
I’ve read Paul Duvall’s book on continuous integration and highly recommend it to anyone who works with CI systems on a regular basis. If anyone can make a service like this successful, Mr. Duvall can.
