The webinar entitled "Continuous Integration and Testing" is geared toward lead engineers, architects, and development managers who are seeking to improve development practices within their organizations. The webinar will focus on how using continuous integration (CI) helps organizations build better software faster.

"Continuous integration is a key practice for organizations concerned about development agility who need to respond quickly while delivering high quality mission-critical applications," said Jeffrey Fredrick, vice president of product management for Agitar Software. "We'll discuss how continuous integration combined with unit testing saves time and money by dramatically lowering the lifetime of defects."

Fredrick also is the lead committer on CruiseControl, the popular open-source framework for continuous integration, and co-organizer of CITCON, the Continuous Integration and Testing Conference. Andrew Glover, co-author of "Continuous Integration: Improving Software Quality and Reducing Risk" (Addison-Wesley, June 2007), will join Fredrick in providing an introduction to CI, describing why CI works, and explaining how businesses can start taking advantage of CI immediately.

Glover is an established expert in automated testing frameworks and tools, and a published author for publications including IBM's DeveloperWorks and O'Reilly's ONJava and ONLamp portals. Glover is also the co-author of Java Testing Patterns (Wiley, 2004), and Groovy in Action (Manning, 2007). He is president of Stelligent Incorporated, a consulting firm advising companies on optimizing software production.
