2009 conference plans

I’m happy to say that I’m going to be at three conferences this year. First, I’ll be speaking on Continuous Integration at the JAOO Developer Day in Copenhagen, Denmark. March 4th.

I’ll be doing a similar talk a few days later at QCon London, March 11-13.

Finally, I’ll be at at CITCON Europe in Paris on September 18, naturellement.

It’s a great honour to be invited to speak at the first two, and to be helping organise the latter. After a quiet year for conferences in 2008, 2009 is looking good already.

Twitter support for CruiseControl

Publishing build status via Twitter is a nice feature to have: there’s no change to the user behaviour required. People subscribe to the Twitter account for your project. CruiseControl committers PJ and JTF have been working on it. It’s in the trunk of the CruiseControl SVN repository. I have some Debian and RPM packages of that revision. They are experimental, mind you. Drop a comment here if you want to have a look.

CITCON Europe 2009: September 18-19 – Paris, France.

Great news: we have a date for CITCON Europe – and it’s in Paris!

What is CITCON? It’s a free Continuous Integration and Testing conference.

  • If you’re a developer interested in how to better craft your code with tests, you’ll fit right in.
  • If you’re a tester looking to automate tests more effectively, welcome.
  • If you run a Continuous Integration system or just happen to like CI, this is for you.

It’s an Open Space conference: there’s no keynote and no timetable. You help choose and organise the sessions. You get a say in how it’s run. Did I mention that it’s a free conference?

Last year I only went to one conference. This one. I paid for the travel and accommodation myself. CITCON Europe. Because it’s worth it.


CITCON is also coming to North America in April, and Australia in July.
