Tobias Nyholm's Publications

  • Effective software development with continuous integration and automation

    • Royal Institute of Technology
    • June 2013
    Authors: Tobias Nyholm

    The report will discuss best practices in software development and how R2Meton AB
    used to do their development. A model will be presented that R2Meton AB has
    implemented to improve their efficiency. The model describes how to automate
    builds, tests, analysis and deployment of the software to a testing environment. The
    increased automation and code analysis will provide more standardization and higher
    quality. Continuous integration is the heart of the model. The continuous integration
    server is the core that makes sure the process is moving forward. It does also give the
    developers feedback when the build breaks or when they fail to comply with the
    quality profile. With a high quality codebase, standards and clear policies you will get
    software that is easy to maintain, further develop and is more reliable.
