Continuous Integration - the act of building often; is often overlooked in the rush to develop software quickly. It can also be the one idea that will save you from Friday Night Fever: Code Integration.

The evening will be capped with a demo of a very famous Open Source CI tool: CruiseControl from Martin Fowler and the gang at ThoughtWorks. During the demo, we will create our very own CI "process".
