A Book About Continuous Integration!

While I was at GLSEC last week, there was a booth set up from Addison Wesley, who publishes technical content. They were set up right outside the room I was presenting in, and sitting on the table was a book I hadn't seen yet: Continuous Integration: Improving Software Quality and Reducing Risk. It's part of their signature series books, and while I haven't read it yet, just glancing through it, it looks pretty good. Actually, I used it as validation before my presentation that I was on the right track - the index was almost a walk-through of exactly what I was going to be showing!

Anyway, after I got home that I night, I started digging around to see if I could find more information about the author - Paul Duvall. I found it - he's the CTO of Stelligent Incorporated and blogs on Test Early, and has a lot of useful information about CI and Agile development in general.

The book also has it's own web site, which has a bunch of good resources and information, as well as allowing you to download Chapter 2, which is an introduction to CI.
