I spent the past two days playing with setting up TeamCity on Azure. This is just a poc more than anything else, but it’s always fun to do something new. I had to fiddle about with some things that didn’t work as expected, so here are some notes to remember what I did.
As an experiment, I modified an NUnit test project to automatically test itself after the build process. This way, the unit tests become an integral part of the build; just by building in Visual Studio you’ll know if you’ve broken a unit test.
TeamCity is a very nice tool that I use at home. Unfortunately the free license allows up to 20 configurations. That’s why I’m experimenting also with another free tool, CruiseControl. It’s definitely not as easy as TeamCity, you have to edit (which means learn) an XML file that the server picks up. In general, it probably supports what TeamCity supports, but you have to make everything yourself with a lot of work. Then again, it’s completely free.
