Excessively long build times severely reduce a team’s ability to apply the XP practice of Continuous Integration. Long build times have a severe impact on team morale, productivity, and project ROI. With the application of techniques described in this Long Build Trouble Shooting Guide, teams will be able to keep their builds from exceeding 10 minutes in length. By keeping builds short, teams will be able to minimize the cost of integration, thereby freeing them to focus on other critical project areas.
