Last month Komal Joshi and Patrick Martin presented @ GTAC 2008 conference in Seattle, USA. Google Test Automation Conference is one of the best conferences for testing / automation and it was certainly a good experience for TestingGeek to present this at GTAC.
This presentation will give you basic information on how simple tools like SVN, batch files, and task schedulers can be used to create Continuous Integration for mature desktop applications.
Solution like these are one of the best way to move teams towards more mature continuous integration environment. Using this approach, teams can start to see and appreciate benefits environment like this will bring to the projects.
Hope this presentation will be easy to follow and you will understand the basic concept behind this.
