Continuous Integration at West Michigan Day of .NET

This past Saturday, I gave a presentation on continuous integration at the West Michigan Day of .NET, and as promised, I'm posting my materials for anyone who wants them. Even for those who didn't attend, I think that simply by dropping your code into this process and modifying a few settings, you could easily have a build process ready to go quickly.

CI - What, Why & How (18.6 MB zip)

For those who were at the presentation, this is the contents of my C:\Build folder (the one that would be on the build server). I've removed all of the .svn folders. It also has my presentation slides, which don't have much content, but there are some notes in there. This was my first attempt at a more "Beyond Bullet Points" type of presentation, so hopefully it worked out.

Here's are the links to the tools I talked about, as well as the ones on the last slide:

Note that not all of these tools are free. NCover requires a license, and Simian is only free for free or open source software.

For everyone who attended, thanks for allowing me to present on something I am passionate about, and hopefully there's something that will benefit you on your future projects.
