Hey ho. So I thought I would throw up a quick blog about how good Team City is. What is it? It’s a Integrated Build Environment from Jetbrains, those people that lovingly bought you IDEA and Resharper. Go along to their site and check it out: Team City Site.
What’s good about it? Like all Jetbrains things it’s highly configurable, highly plugable and the Web-UI is also probably the slickest “Web 2.0” ajax application i’ve seen. If you are into Unit Testing (you should be) then it runs and records all your tests, how long they take, which ones fail more often etc. It’s basically a “Cruise Control” but done with some real love.
Something really cool we are about to do is integrate unit tests from VB and even VBA (not that VB or VBA is any way cool) as well; this is done using a nice little team city trick I found in the documentation: Integrate any testing framework.
Also it’s free for 20 projects, and 3 build agents. If you are a reader from “any particular organisation” where I work: Hey you’re in luck; we have an enterprise license, send me a mail and I can put you in touch with the right people.
