A few weeks ago our fearless leader Kohsuke Kawaguchi joined the San Francisco Java Users Group to talk about continuous integration with Hudson. Thanks to Marakana for organizing the meetup, and Aleksandar Gargenta for posting the video and slides, embedded below.

Justifying Continuous Integration Expenditure
Our friend the Build Doctor, tries to quantify spending on continuous integration. In the comment thread on another related post of his, he strikes gold with:
People are more expensive than Continuous Integration servers; let’s optimise the system for them....
This week we had 18 plugin releases, with the xUnit plugin managing to have a release almost every day. For this edition of TWiP I was actually able to generate the log of releases mostly automatically thanks to rpetti who contributed the script to the contiuous-blog-tools repository on GitHub.
This past week saw two new plugins, the SSH plugin and the Global Build Stats plugin,...
Via the @hudsonci twitter account I typically share or "retweet" a number of links during the day, I realize a number of people either do not use Twitter or do not constantly pay attention to it. A lot of the links I find quite interesting, so I’d like to try sharing them after the fact here.

Hyperic builds enterprise systems monitoring and management software and also contributes to a number of open source projects, many of which are built with Hudson.
To date I must say that Doug’s use of Hudson is one of...
Are you working on a project which uses java.net’s Maven repository for deploying its artifacts?
Well, if so, there’s a great opportunity opening up for you to get off that problematic repository: Sonatype is helping java.net projects move to Sonatype’s hosted OSS Nexus repository, starting March 5th. We’re looking into moving Hudson over but for most smaller projects, this should be a no-brainer. Problems with...
This past week PyCon has been going on in Atlanta, where Titus Brown gave a talk titled:
Why not run all your tests all the time? A study of continuous integration systems
Titus has some notable quotes "just use Hudson" but overall a good introduction of CI and a breakdown of some of the challenges behind continuous integration. He also does a good job going over...
