Presentation: "What goes wrong when thousands of engineers share the same continuous build?"

Track: Gamification and Tools / Time: Wednesday 14:30 - 15:20 / Location: 2nd Floor Balcony, Musikhuset

How do several thousands of developers work over one source tree? How to produce a stable release from a repository which changes several times a minute?

This talk explores the challenges that Google's build and test infrastructure faces: Reliability of tests that run multiple times per minute, testing integration between constantly-­changing components and how the stability of the testing infrastructure itself comes into play on such a large scale. As we detail the challenges, we’ll talk about what we (think) we got right and the tools and practices that helped us get there.
