Continuous integration-the buzzword du jour

Posted at — Oct 26, 2013

Build and test cycles integrated into the standard makefile have been around for many years. Triggered builds based on commitments have been in production for many years too. To give that process a name like continuous integration is admirable since it conjures up instant recognition or understanding.

However, I am starting to get a sense that continuous integration is being overused and marginalized and productize by marketing departments in order to sell services or garner favor.
