Hello and welcome to "Continuous Blog", the official Hudson weblog! If you don't mind me saying so, I think its arrival is long overdue. Since Hudson started in November of 2006, there hasn't been a central "voice" for the project. In just a few short years Hudson has grown into a substantial project with hundreds of plugins and thousands of users around the world. Kohsuke's nice Java-based extensible continuous integration server has grown up into fantastic tool with a great community around it.
Goals for this weblog
I think it is important to set out a couple of goals for this weblog, some simple items that should help guide the content and discussion around Continuous Blog and its future.
Continuous Blog should:
- Help advocate the use of Hudson to the larger internet community
- Be a central source for tutorials and helpful information to Hudson users of all skill-levels
- Recognize the numerous contributors to the Hudson project for their efforts
What to expect
As Continuous Blog grows and matures, you can expect to see a variety of Hudson-related content. Overviews of the latest releases of Hudson and its plugins, interviews and discussions with the developers who have contributed to Hudson over the years, guest posts by power-users on how Hudson fits into their workflow and much much more (really).
If you look around the page you'll already see a good amount of content, in the sidebar to the right you'll notice the "Recently Released" section which aggregates recently released plugins via this RSS feed , the "Blogs" section which is an aggregation of Hudson community blogs (from this RSS feed).
We're just starting out so make sure you subscribe to the RSS feed, we've got a lot to talk about here on Continuous Blog.
