February Meetup - Continuous Integration


The entrance for the MP office has now changed, there is a  brand gated entrance 20 feet closer to the right. Dial 129 at the gate/door to gain admittance. 

On entering proceed forward up the main staircase in the atrium and turn left at the top. Follow the corridor round and you will arrive at the MP office landing.

We will try and have people on hand to escort you up if you arrive before 6.45pm, after that you're on your own! You will not be able to gain access via the old entrance and door entry system.


Hi all,

This months theme is Continuous Integration and we have two talks about how you can make your development process more efficient and robust using Continuous Integration.

Talk 1: Using Bamboo to enable Continuous Integration

An introduction to Bamboo and how to make the most of it when used with the Salesforce1 platform and dev tools.

Speaker Bio:

Klea Kolaric was originally a C++ developer specialising in computer graphics, but 5 years ago she started working on the platform and she hasn't looked back since. She currently works at Tquila as a Technical Consultant.

Talk 2: Automating deployment between Orgs using Git and Continuous Integration

Automating the deployment between environments (dev, test, prod, etc.) gives consistency, visibility, and validation to the process.This greatly speeds up deployment and provides early detection of defects. Join us as we cover the theory and best practices of this approach. You'll discover how to design your own automated processes using Continuous Integration (CI) tools and Git version control.

Speaker Bio

Sebastian Wagner is a freelance Salesforce Certified Technical Architect with German passion for governance, best practices, efficiency and dogs.

Venue: Make Positive's office near London Bridge

    Those that attended this meet up may recall that one of the issues mentioned with using bamboo or jenkins, is that you have to put your prod username, password and security token in an unencrypted file.
    Summer 15 is offering a possible solution for that, although it's sub optimal:

    Summer 15 add the ability to replace the username & password with a session id, when invoking the ant migration tool kit. This means you do not have to share your login credentials with the world HOWEVER
    this is still sub-optimal, as this ID is temporary - so you have to login to SFDC, run an anonymous apex command (system.debug(userinfo.getSessionId());) to get your session ID , which is than only valid for about 3 hours ...

    nevertheless - this solution still works if you work in an environment with strict security requirement or where you are only granted temporary access to prod for releases

    Great meetup, thanks to the sponsors and of course to Klea and Sebastian for their talks. It was great to hear the input from those in the audience too.

    I have written a short review here for those that missed it

    Good information and code here from the Salesforce Foundation on how they manage the Nonprofit Starterpack application from end to end. They are using GitHub and Jenkins. Pretty comprehensive.

    Seb, you mentioned some way of auto-generating package.xml. Do you have any examples?

  • Klea K.

    Hi, thanks to everybody who attended last night!

    You can find the slides I used here:

    I also have a more detailed post about Bamboo features up on the Tquila blog (including how to build any commit from the repository):
    It will give you more details on how to actually configure the features instead of just giving a general overview.

    Also, there were some interesting questions raised about destructive changes (and how to run them in Bamboo), so keep an eye out on the Tquila blog, I'm hoping to have an introduction to basic Ant scripts/build targets up soon :)
