Hudson – Book, Changes and Community

A long time ago I started to use continuous integrations (CI) servers starting with anthill and moving via Apache Continuum and Atlassian Bamboo to Hudson. Since then I feel that a project without CI builds is missing a crucial bit of infrastructure and communication tool, that can not be underestimated in value. And then earlier this year the opportunity to write on a book about Hudson presented itself to me…

AnDevCon feedback and outlook

How time flies! I am so busy working on my clients Android application and the book about the Hudson continuous integration server that my blogging got a bit neglected. In the frenzy I did manage to work on a whole bunch of pull requests for the Maven Android Plugins upcoming releases and get involved again in AnDevCon. Yeah.. AnDevCon was a great conference earlier this year and my feedback is on the site for the upcoming AnDevCon 2 in November. And I will be there again. But let’s start with more from AnDevCon 1.

Android Development Introduction at VIJUG

Last night I presented at the Vancouver Island JUG about Android development. The meeting was well attended with about 20 attendees and everybody learned about things like the activity life cycle, layout files, resources and many more things. The presentation file is available for download just in case you need to look something up or you could not attend.
