Event Description

Chariots Solutions

Philly SPIN meeting on December 15th  6-8PM at Chariot Solutions in Fort Washington, PA

TOPIC: Introduction to Maven and Continuous Integration presented by Ken Rimple



An overview of the Maven platform, how it is used to build applications, and tips and tricks for constructing good build processes. And continuous integration, using Jenkins, and how to automate key reports.  Code coverage, test results, and code quality metrics.

Maven is an application development lifecycle tool that is often misunderstood. It has been called an "overly complicated build tool", "completely uncontrollable" and "inflexible" by many.

Complex build problems, organized source code, developers on your team have to know this.

(As an added attraction and advert blurb, attending gets you to $150 off list price of a full day Introduction to Maven course, normally a $595 course, down to $345 per seat. Discount code given at the talk.)
