Presenting at SDC on Build Servers and Metrics

UPDATE: Download PowerPoint Here

I'll be presenting at the Software Development Community (SDC) on Sunday, April 1st on Build Servers and Metrics. The SDC meets in Oakbrook.

ALM tooling: Empowering teams with build servers and metrics
Everyone knows that automated builds are a good thing, but many teams don't leverage them fully because it's hard to get started. Tim will go over practical techniques and concepts for automating builds with TFS and MSbuild. Once you have an automated build, there are dozens of steps you can hook into it, such as metrics. Tim will walk through several core metrics, including line count, code churn, duplication, complexity, and test code coverage, as well as the concepts and pitfalls for adopting these within a team.
