I still remember the first time I was on a project that used NAnt and CruiseControl.NET. It was years ago and both were new tools with plenty of bugs. The project manager took one of the team's architects and dedicated him to getting CI up and running. I didn't work with him for another 9 months. It was a complete nightmare. Every morning was dedicated to finding out why the builds failed, fixing the issue, and then manually rerunning the builds until successful. Then it was off to show management the new build reports. It didn't take long for them to not want to be hassled with the process. A year after it all began the code base was removed from the CI process and went back to manual builds.

Not a very good story to start the review of a book on CI that I highly recommend you read. Times have changed, the tools have improved, and with books like this available you have no reason to not give CI a go. You may have plenty of excuses, but no reasons. Luckily this book contains a nice summary of excuses commonly used and does a nice job of debunking them.

The book starts off with a chapter titled Understanding continuous integration which gives a nice overview of CI and introduces the CI tools. They include source control, CI server, feedback mechanism, build manager, unit test framework, documenting, and code-analysis tools.

The book continues with chapters on Setting up a source control system, Automating the build process, Choosing the right CI server, Continuous feedback, Unit testing continuously integrated code, Performing integration, system, and acceptance testing, Analyzing the code, Generating documentation, Deployment and delivery, Continuous database integration, and Extending continuous integration.

This is a great book for beginners, but doesn't go into great details that you ultimately need to become an expert. The book probably covers 50-60% of the things you'll need, the rest is your own research and trial/error process.

The book is well written. The authors have gathered so much information in this book that it will help those of you who want to use CI. I'd heartily recommend this book for anyone making the transition to Continuous Integration in the .NET world.
It is simple to rate this book: every .NET team not using Continuous Integration should own and read this book!
I have been using CI in my own team, and have also been assisting several clients in setting up CI. Over the past several years, I have seen many teams using CI just to compile their code. If your team is doing just that, than this is the book you need to read and follow. All CI concepts are illustrated with examples. The authors use a large number of diagrams, tables, and code snippets with detailed explanations.

Note: This was also the first technical book which I read on my Kindle, and the rendering of the diagrams, tables, code snippets was just great.

Target Audience:
The target audience for this book is the entire .NET development team. For a beginner trying to understand Continuous Integration, for a Tester who wants the system to be in a working state before and after integration, and the Manager who want to reduce risks, this book will give a solid foundation of CI and its concepts. It is for all kinds of .NET developers: Beginners, Intermediate as well as Experienced CI users.

Tools Covered:
The authors cover several tools required for setting up a successful CI system, and the book has working examples to setup and use each of the tools listed below. The list below itself makes this book an important part of every .NET developer's arsenal.

1. CI Servers
* CruiseControl.NET
* TeamCity
* Team Foundation Server 2010
