View – Continua Funny error at http://80.100.143.119:58080/EyePoint/ci/builds/view/191 which uses the FastMM-jeroenp repository which is at https://jeroenp@bitbucket.org/jeroenp/fastmm.git and does have changesets according to https://bitbucket.org/jeroenp/fastmm/commits/all but is also a GIT SVN cloned repository. What am I doing wrong? Note: it is NOT an SVN repository, so https://www.finalbuilder.com/support/forums/aft/13159 does not apply. Before enabling all sorts of logging (: Found it: must mark the repository to use “git-svn” as branch, not “master”.

Recently I got an error like this in Continua CI:

Build ErrorUnable to start build – No changesets found in repository: [FastMM-jeroenp]

This was about my Git FastMM repository on BitBucket. Which is a Git repository originally gotten through Git SVN (more on that at a later time).

Since it is not an SVN repository, SVN – No changesets found in repository – VSoft Technologies does not apply, but got me closer to the solution

The solution is this

Continua CI – v1.5.0.295 Released. Critical bug fix for Git; requires resetting your Git repositories

Posted by Jeroen Pluimers on 2014/09/18

If you run Continua CI 1.5.x.y and use Git then make sure you upgrade to at least Continua CI 1.5.0.295 (get it from the Continua CI download page).

Click on the shield icon, followed by

Click on the shield icon, followed by “CI Server”

After that, reset all your Git repositories in ContinuaCI.

To view all the repositories on the server, follow either of these steps:

  • A:
    1. Logon as an administrator with the rights to view all repositories on the Continua CI server.
    2. Click on the shield icon in the top bar.
    3. Then click on “CI Server”.
    4. In the list on the left, scroll down and click “Repositories”.
  • B:
    1. Logon as an administrator with the rights to view all repositories on the Continua CI server.
    2. Note the URL in the address bar of your browser (for instance http://localhost:8080/ci).
    3. Replace the /ci part of your URL with /administration/ci/repositories (so you end up at something like http://localhost:8080/administration/ci/repositories).
    4. Go to that URL.

Now you are in the repositories section, where you see all the repositories configured on the Continua CI. Each repository has a [Reset] link in the right most column.

Free JavaScript and Python Books (via: revolunet)

Posted by Jeroen Pluimers on 2014/09/17

Great to see the French company revolunet list a lot of non-French books on JavaScript and Python:

So where their government tries to make radio stations, written press, etc to favour French over other languages, French companies look beyond their borders.

Great!

Pair Programming – you need to strike a balance

Posted by Jeroen Pluimers on 2014/09/16

I love improving my own and teams’ programming skills.

Key is to strike a balance, as there never is a silver bullet.

One of the things lots of people praise is Pair Programming. And it works great: up to a certain point, for some categories of people.

So it it worthwhile to read an article like Ben Northrop – Pair Programming – My Personal Nightmare.

Being a Meyers-Briggs type ISTP and best functioning as a Completer Finisher team role according to the Belbin tests, I love “flow state” and value being able to both work in solitude, and share knowledge/crafts with the teams I’m part of.

Which means I like Extreme Programming techniques like Pair Programming, Scrum sprints, Standup Meetings, etc. I am also very much aware that the sticky notes on a brown paper wall cover don’t stick for long.

So like in real life, it’s all about awareness and striking a balance in what you do: be aware what you do, how you do it and why you do it.
