Software Build Automation with Jenkins – XDA Developer TV

Many members of the XDA community come to learn and begin in the exciting world of software development. Once you’ve gone through the development process and written your software, you need to ensure that maintenance does not cause additional problems and the results are always completely reproducible. This is where a build automation system comes in to play. Jenkins is one such software which allows you to keep a hands-off approach to building and releasing your software.

In this episode of XDA Developer TV, AdamOutler talks about Jenkins. Jenkins is a build automation software which runs on Linux and Mac, as well as Windows with some effort. Jenkins can be triggered by Git or Subversion commit hooks on each commit and will allow a developer or project manager to know the build status of the software in real-time. Jenkins can be used to build Android Apps, Kernels, Android systems, and just about every other type of software out there. But it doesn’t just stop there. AdamOutler shows you his Jenkins system and gives examples of alternate uses such as generating HTML from TODO comments, creating documentation websites, managing complex releases and more. So check this video out.

Watches: Luxurious Frivolity vs. Humble Practicality

Smartwatches still have a lot of growing up to do. Not too long ago the latest Canalys figures revealed a rather disappointing outcome for 2014, something we covered with the ultimate conclusion that, once again, smartwatches had no year. The direction of smartwatches is unclear to even the biggest OEMs, and with every new option there seems to be polarizing dissonances from what people and OEMs want and what they both think they want. We've documented many of the reasons as to...

Do ISPs Abuse Their Power?

Every day, the majority of us use the internet through several different internet service providers, but what we may not think about whilst using this service is how much control these companies have over our experience. AT&T recently launched their rival to the Google Fiber service and subsequently looked for a way to further monetize on their offering. For an extra $29 on top of the $70 monthly charge, you can buy your privacy back from them. Otherwise expect online adverts...
