Paul Duvall has just finished his newest book Continuous Integration: Improving Software Quality and Reducing Risk. It's published by Addison Wesley and is part of the Martin Fowler Signature Book collection.
Paul and I are good friends and we spent many years in the trenches together back in the 1990's when I worked in Virgina. It would be accurate to say Paul was one of the few architects that I've worked with over the years that really understood the importance of creating a strong development infrastructure for supporting development and designing/constructing applications for deployment/production. Simply put, we learned how to integrate and deploy systems make easy. This was over 10 years ago when concepts like Agile, XP and CI were in their infancy.
So congratulations on the new book Paul and BTW, thanks for dropping my name in the preface. :-)
