Build automation makes it possible for the software developer to script, or automate, tasks that they do in their day-to-day activities including things like: compiling computer source code into binary code, packaging binary code, running tests, deployment to production systems and creating documentation and/or release notes.
This makes the task easier for the developer, eliminates repetitive tasks and hence decreasing development costs in the long run. Employment of this technology at Creative Chaos enables us to deliver high-quality work in less time, with low costs.
For our build automation needs, we have excellent expertise in CruiseControl, which is both a continuous integration tool and an extensible framework for creating a custom continuous build process.
Cruise Control improves product quality, accelerates the compile and link processing, eliminates redundant tasks, minimizes “bad builds”, eliminates dependencies on key personnel, has history of builds and releases in order to investigate issues, and saves time and money for our clients.
